“After major disasters it can take months before essential medicines are available in the most devastated communities,” said Kate Sears, AmeriCares senior vice president of emergency response. “With help from dedicated partners like Mylan, we are ensuring survivors have access to chronic care medicines that can prevent further tragedy.”

Mylan has supported AmeriCares since 1991. “Mylan is very pleased to support AmeriCares relief effort in the Philippines. Our mission to provide the world’s 7 billion people with access to high-quality medicine is aligned with AmeriCares ongoing efforts to expand access to medicine through distribution to communities in need,” said Heather Bresch, Mylan’s CEO.
