We work hand-in-hand with our local and global partners to catalyze scalable and sustainable healthcare models that improve access and health outcomes, and accelerate efforts to eliminate leprosy and malaria by focusing on interventions that aim to interrupt transmission.
Everything we do is grounded in evidence and innovation, and our work is a continuous cycle of evaluation, adaptation and application. In 2016, the operational budget for the foundation was CHF 15 million and our programs reached 8.9 million people.
The Novartis Foundation is committed to ensuring quality healthcare in low- and middle-income countries.
