As India battles the devastating current wave of COVID-19 infections, Biogen and the Biogen Foundation have committed more than $500,000 in personal protective equipment and financial support to strengthen Indian healthcare systems and support vulnerable communities. The donation includes a $250,000 grant to support a public matching gift campaign from Americares and nearly 200,000 masks for outbreaks across the globe.
Biogen, Americares, and the Center for Climate, Health and the Global Environment at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health have teamed up to help community health clinics in the United States mitigate climate risks.
Joining the other companies that are part of the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion, the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) in the workplace, Biogen held a Week of Understanding. Inspired by employees’ ideas and engagement, Biogen’s event included virtual conversations and opportunities to learn about DE&I within the company, the broader healthcare system and the wider world.
New project focuses on the intersection of health, equity, climate and prosperity, among other issues
GENEVA, Switzerland, 21 April 2021 /3BL Media/ - As the issue of health continues to rise up the global agenda in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, member companies from the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) have come together to launch a new project to advance global health and wellbeing.
Across the United States, more than 2,800 community health clinics provide free and low-cost healthcare to more than 32 million people. Many of these patients have household incomes near or below the federal poverty level and are located in areas facing climate-related burdens, such as exposure to air pollution, dangerous heat waves, and extreme weather events. The climate crisis is increasingly viewed a global health crisis that disproportionately impacts low-income communities.
