Save the Children partnership

Nearly 7 million children under five die each year from diseases that are preventable. Most of these deaths are in the developing world.

Three areas need urgent attention to help change the future for these children: a supply of vaccines and medicines, more healthcare workers, and availability of nutritious food. We have embarked on an ambitious global partnership with Save the Children to share our expertise and resources and focus on these three areas in order to make a lasting change for the world’s most vulnerable children.

The partnership goes well beyond the traditional charity corporate fundraising model. It will touch many areas of our business, in particular using our R&D capabilities to help save children’s lives. Starting in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Kenya, we will develop programmes that use our joint expertise and resources to make a lasting change for the world’s most vulnerable children.

Working together with Save the Children, we believe this could be the generation that eliminates child deaths from preventable disease.
