Better Community Health

India

With approximately half of our workforce in India, Mylan provides a wide range of support in the areas of healthcare, education, community welfare and the environment. In India, we are proud to honor the India Companies Act. It mandates that companies spend 2% of their average net profits on corporate social responsibility initiatives. Since 2014 Mylan has invested nearly $4 million in such initiatives.

Healthcare

Hepatitis C

(HCV) impacts more than 12 million people in India. In response, Mylan designed an intervention plan for HCV that aligns to the WHO’s recommendations. It focuses on awareness building, education, initial screening and counseling to support global goals related to reducing and eliminating hepatitis.

Education

Mylan strives to support schools, particularly for underprivileged children, by helping address shortcomings in infrastructure, such as classrooms, furniture, toilets and potable water. In 2017 we helped more than 12,000 students.

Community Welfare and the Environment

Mylan addressed access to clean drinking water, sanitation and waste management; helped clean two major bodies of water in Andhra Pradesh; and planted 22,000 trees.
