Supporting Hurricane Relief Efforts

September 17, 2017

We have a strong tradition at Mylan of supporting communities in need. That means being there for those affected by hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria in Florida, Puerto Rico and Texas. 

Mylan has shipped more than 6 million doses of medicine, including anti-infective, cardiovascular, endocrine and metabolic, gastrointestinal, hematological and respiratory medications, to aid in hurricane-recovery efforts through its charitable distribution partners, Direct Relief, Americares and Heart to Heart International.

In addition, Mylan chartered a cargo aircraft carrying more than 36,000 pounds of essential items to Puerto Rico, which is home to a Mylan manufacturing facility.

In Texas, Mylan partnered with SBP, a nonprofit organization dedicated to national disaster recovery, and has donated more than $80,000 to assist statewide efforts. This monetary donation was made possible through generous employee contributions and Mylan's corporate match.

In all affected areas, Mylan is offering housing and providing direct financial assistance for Mylan employees in need.
