Access Accelerated Initiative
Non-communicable diseases – such as cancers, cardiovascular diseases, chronic respiratory diseases, diabetes and mental health disorders – are a major public health issue.
It is estimated that they are responsible for 38 million deaths each year, almost three quarters of which occur in low and middle-income countries with limited access to healthcare.
We believe it is through collaboration that we can build a future where no one dies prematurely from a treatable, preventable disease.
In 2017, Sanofi, together with 21 industry competitors and peers, the World Bank and the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), launched the Access Accelerated Initiative.
