We also foster the development of prevention through the company’s integrated care program.As a health journey partner, we focus on one objective: improving access to healthcare and high-quality medications for underserved populations in our ﬁelds of expertise by:
- Serving the needs of patients with non-communicable diseases
- Contributing to the eradication, elimination and control of some infectious diseases
- Fighting against falsified medicines
Through our varied initiatives, we are impacting lives by improving access to healthcare, providing support to address critical needs in our communities, and promoting environmental sustainability. As a health journey partner, we focus on one objective: improving access to healthcare and high-quality medications for underserved populations in our Manxili is located 62km away from Nquthu – the nearest town with a health care facility. The population is approximately 13 800. The Manxili community only has access to basic healthcare services through a mobile clinic which come every two weeks. Due to the fact that there is no primary healthcare facility, females give birth to children under trees – while on their way to hospital or waiting for transportation

Noordwyk Primary School
Lead by the TEAMWORK Project team, Sanofi spent two full days painting classrooms at the Noordwyk Primary School in Midrand. Over 200 employees participated in this exercise to experience the Madiba spirit. 2018 being the centenary of the birth of Nelson Mandela, this provided a unique opportunity to collaborate and work together and promote Mandela’s legacy. This has been a great success and well done to the TEAMWORK team”, said Thibault.
“I am so happy with the work that has been done, I couldn’t wait to see the children’s faces when they came back from school on Monday. Everything is just spot on and fresh, our school has been revived and I’m grateful that our school was identified for this wonderful project. On behalf of the Noordwyk Primary school and teachers at the school, I want to thank all Sanofi employees for the wonderful work” said the school principle Mrs. Eloff
“Due to its geographical location the school doesn’t get prioritized. The school currently has a feeding scheme which only supports 22 destitute children. The food parcels, and the R15 000 donated by the employees, will go a long way towards feeding these kids” concludes Mrs Eloff.
