Takeda-Plan Healthcare Access Program

In 2009, Takeda and Plan established the Healthcare Access Program. The program provided support for improved access to healthcare services for children in China, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Thailand.

Healthcare Access Program

In August 2009, Takeda partnered with Plan Japan, an international NGO, to establish the "Takeda-Plan Healthcare Access Program". Improving and maintaining the health of children in developing countries requires measures that match the differing needs of each region in such areas as public hygiene, nutritional improvement, healthcare support, and awareness-raising for disease prevention. Based on this recognition, Takeda-Plan Healthcare Access Program promotes a range of well-thought-out measures aimed at giving children in Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia and China where Takeda operates better access to healthcare services. The program conducted extensive activities for giving children better access to healthcare. Each country targets a specific issue: in Thailand, the program worked on disease prevention by raising awareness among youth on the measures to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS; In the Philippines, activities of the program aimed to support for the healthcare services for children by providing monetary support for hospitalization, treatment, purchase of medications, etc.; in Indonesia, activities were focused on public hygiene by ending the practices of spitting outdoors and defecation outdoors; and in China, activities were focused on nutrition education in schools and access to nutrition diets for children. The four individual projects implemented based on Takeda-Plan program conform to the "United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)", which were adopted in 2000 by the United Nations.
