Sanofi Epilepsy Initiatives

Sanofi epilepsy programs have been set up in the following countries: Kenya, Mali, Madagascar, Ethiopia, Cambodia, Laos, Bolivia, Ghana, Vietnam (the two last ones through the Sanofi Espoir Foundation). In addition wider programs with an epilepsy component are ongoing in Morocco, Benin and Mauritania. In June 2012, in order to raise awareness about epilepsy, Sanofi launched the comic book "We'll make it" intended to fight exclusion of children with epilepsy. Sanofi Access to Medicines epilepsy programs are based on four pillars:

  • Partnerships and collaborations enabling stakeholders from different sectors (public, private, NGOs, universities) to join forces.
  • Training for front-line healthcare professionals in diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy.
  • Efforts to combat stigmatization by informing communities about the medical causes of epilepsy.
  • Preferential pricing policy, including "no-profit no-loss" prices, to help make medicines accessible to the poorest.
