Sanofi Delivers 300 million Malaria Treatments in Africa

Sanofi Reaches New Milestone in Fight Against Malaria: 
300 million ASAQ Treatments Delivered in Africa 

- Sanofi (EURONEXT: SAN and NYSE: SNY) announced on  World Malaria Day that 300 million treatments of anti-malarial ASAQ Winthrop®  have been delivered in Africa since the medication became available in 2007. ...

“Beyond the therapeutic and industrial innovation of this medication, the real success of this project is in the social innovation,” said Dr. Robert Sebbag, Vice President, Access to Medicines, Sanofi. “By forgoing a patent on this treatment and committing to a tiered pricing model, with prices which can reach “no profit-no loss” levels for the public sector and major international health organizations, Sanofi and the Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi) took a bold step that has improved access to antimalarial treatments.” 

Through partnerships with African National Malaria Control Programs, Sanofi is working with local experts and other non-governmental organizations on educational programs and materials aimed at fighting malaria on all fronts, from prevention to diagnosis and treatment. 
One such program, the “Schoolchildren Against Malaria” initiative has reached more than 3.6 million children across nine African countries through games, theatre competitions and related TV programs.
