Reducing Health Disparities
The Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation helps reduce health disparities around the world.
The Foundation engages partners to develop, execute, evaluate and promote innovative programs to improve the health outcomes of populations disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa; hepatitis in Asia; type 2 diabetes; mental health and well-being in the U.S.; and cancer in Europe. In addition, we also support other charitable initiatives that meet our criteria.
The Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation’s Together on Diabetes™ initiative marked World Diabetes Day by announcing $1.8 million in new grants focused on the link between diabetes, depression and distress and issued its third annual report. To date, over $53 million has been committed to 25 grantees working in 60 heavily affected communities across the United States.
