Healthy communities for all
Supporting relief efforts in Ukraine
Speaking about International Medical Corps, which AmerisourceBergen supports, a coordinator from Maternity Hospital No. 5 in Odesa said: “There are not enough words to describe our gratitude and appreciation for your help and support to our cry for the universe. Today we received kits for labor and C-section for our hospital. All the staff are amazed and can’t believe it happened. Thanks a lot for all you are doing, not only for us but also for the hundreds of thousands of our Ukrainians who have become refugees.”
We also made an impact on the Ukraine crisis through our independent, non-profit charitable giving organization, the AmerisourceBergen Foundation. To learn more about the Foundation’s philanthropic efforts, see the AmerisourceBergen Foundation section in this report.
Expanding access to healthcare
Tackling disparities in cancer care
AmerisourceBergen convened healthcare industry executives, community oncology providers, and other patient-care advocates for its first-ever Disparities in Cancer Care Summit. Attendees discussed pressing issues related to cancer care, including the role of personalized medicine in addressing disparities, community oncology’s role in breaking down barriers to access care, and how providers can leverage digital tools to deliver care across diverse patient populations.
AmerisourceBergen also launched a Disparities in Cancer Care Task Force, which strives to address disparities and analyzes social determinants of health for oncology patients at the community level. The Task Force has a detailed roadmap, which includes improving access to research and publishing on health disparities in partnership with providers and industry stakeholders, identifying ways to expand patient access to precision medicine, and advocating at the federal and state levels to improve the lives of patients affected by complex diseases.
