Sanofi Espoir Foundation

The Sanofi Espoir Foundation was created in October 2010 to consolidate more than 20 years of commitment to national and international solidarity.

Its mission is to contribute to reducing health inequalities among populations that need it most by applying a socially responsible approach. Its action lines are focused on three key targets:

  • fighting childhood cancers in low-income countries,
  • improving maternal and newborn health,
  • improving access to care for the most vulnerable population in France.

The Foundation naturally responds to humanitarian emergencies, but focuses primarily on long-term partnerships to act on such recurrent issues as education and prevention, training and access to care.
