Abbott highlights commitment to healthcare

5th June 2008

Pharmaceutical group Abbott has published a report highlighting its commitment to accessing healthcare.

Entitled Ingenuity at Work, it discusses the contributions made by the company to innovation, the environment, education and science.

A statement from Abbott also noted is position as a “leader” in these sectors and said its funding programme had now given more than $385 million (197.8 million pounds) toward the improvement of people across the globe.

“To us, citizenship challenges are core business challenges – they’re part of how we effectively develop, manufacture and market a product,” commented Abbott’s chairman and chief executive officer Miles D White.

“We find it invigorating that society is demanding more of business enterprises today and we’re energised to meet and extend these new standards.”

The company, which last month published results of its phase III study of TriLipix in combination with an AstraZeneca drug, said some of its major accomplishments in 2007 included a $2.5 billion investment in research and development.
