|Teva Highlights Key Milestones Achieved in the 2017 Social Impact Report|
Teva’s 2017 Social Impact Report spotlights the company’s commitment to corporate responsibility and transparency, and provides context on its efforts to contribute to healthy communities in ways the business can uniquely support—through safe medicines, collaboration, health initiatives and innovative research. The report also presents six new corporate positions and policies, establishing the company’s commitment to donations, human rights, diversity and inclusion, occupational health and safety, the environment and antimicrobial resistance.
“Since joining the company late last year, I have been motivated by the opportunity to advance our legacy of promoting health. Operating as an ethical, enduring enterprise is critical to continue bringing value to our business, our stakeholders and society,” said Kåre Schultz, President and CEO of Teva. “Social Impact is inherently embedded in our brand, as Teva is uniquely positioned to improve health by offering accessible treatments to millions worldwide.”

The report quantifies health, economic and personal challenges of patients with MCC and the burden on communities and systems.
