Sanofi-Aventis announces expansion of programme

16th December 2008

Sanofi-Aventis has increased access to non-oncology patient assistance programmes.

The project – for people up to 250 per cent of the poverty level – assists in providing individuals with the company’s prescription medicines.

Greg Irace, president and chief executive of Sanofi-Aventis, said the company remains “committed” to making its products available for patients on low incomes.

He added: “We have taken several steps to help patients with the greatest financial need access these medications.”

The scheme provides drugs to patients with different disease states including diabetes, urology, rheumatoid arthritis, dermatology, blood clotting – including deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism – and allergies.

Last week, Sanofi-Aventis appointed a new chief financial officer, two weeks after the company announced a new chief executive officer.

It follows the resignation from the role by Jean-Claude Leroy, who had worked at the company from 2004.

His deputy – Laurence Debroux – will take on the position from Wednesday (December 17th) as a result.

Sanofi-Aventis’ main production sites in the UK are at Fawdon near Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Holmes Chapel in Cheshire and Dagenham in Essex.

The company’s marketing, medical, financial and legal departments are also based at Guildford in Surrey.
