The Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation Specialty Care for Vulnerable Populations national initiative seeks to improve and expand care for uninsured or underinsured people who are struggling with cancer, HIV or cardiovascular diseases.
Social and health system barriers such as poverty and a lack of healthcare providers affect the ability of poor and vulnerable populations to access and navigate specialty healthcare. These barriers can lead to patients either significantly delaying or discontinuing care or – worst of all – forgoing the care recommended for them.
The goal of our national initiative is to improve and expand specialty care service delivery by safety net providers. Our efforts will achieve more optimal and equitable outcomes for people struggling with cancer, HIV, or cardiovascular diseases such as stroke, atrial fibrillation, and venous thromboembolism.
