Prescription for a Better World

Our approach to corporate social responsibility (CSR) ties directly to our purpose: helping people on their path to better health. As a pharmacy innovation company, we work every day to provide products and services that help people on this journey. We also strive to address the other obstacles people might encounter on their path, such as the affordability and accessibility of their health care. We define these efforts and our CSR strategy as our Prescription for a Better World.

Prescription for a Better World is focused on three key priorities: building healthier communities, protecting the planet and creating economic opportunities. These tie directly to the CSR priorities we identified in 2013, and to many of the CSR initiatives we have supported for a long time.

Additional details about the issues we are addressing and the structure we have in place to deliver on our priorities are provided throughout this chapter.
