Every year during the festive season, Oxford PharmaGenesis donates to a charity aligned with our company mission to help patients in areas of unmet medical need. This year, Oxford PharmaGenesis is donating to UNICEF to help fund the delivery of more than 150 000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccines to some of the communities that need them most.
The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is helping to deliver 2 billion COVID-19 vaccines to low- and middle-income countries to help protect the people at highest risk of COVID-19, including healthcare professionals.
Our donation to UNICEF will help to fund the delivery of 152 220 doses of the COVID-19 vaccines.
It will help to ensure that:
- vaccines can be delivered to some of the most remote communities worldwide
- vaccines can be stored safely in temperature-controlled environments
- healthcare professionals are protected and able to vaccinate their communities
- teachers are vaccinated so that children can return to school.
Chris Winchester, Oxford PharmaGenesis Chief Executive Officer, said:
“As a HealthScience communications consultancy, one of our areas of focus is equity in healthcare. We are currently supporting communications to encourage diversity and inclusion across clinical trials. We want to work towards a world in which everyone has access to the healthcare they need, whoever they are and wherever they live.”
