Improving Sanitation and Access to Clean Water in India
Improving access to clean water and sanitation is a focus for Mylan in India. To help address these issues, Mylan India is implementing a comprehensive sanitation and hygiene program in schools across the states of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.
Over the last three years, Mylan India has provided 21 toilet facilities to schools in different states under the Swachh Vidyalaya program1, with eight multi-unit facilities installed in 2018 benefiting around 2600 students.
Mylan also provided five schools in Parwada Mandal, Visakhapatnam with reverse osmosis (RO) purification water systems. This initiative will benefit approximately 1500 children by providing them with clean, safe drinking water. Additionally, in an effort to assist communities with proper collection of solid waste, Mylan donated garbage disposal trucks to four villages.
