Our commitment goes beyond the areas where we operate to improve the health and relieve the suffering of patients with respiratory and neonatal diseases in countries where the company does not commercialise its products and where access to quality healthcare is not always guaranteed. This is the mission pursued by the Chiesi Foundation, a no-profit organisation founded in 2005 as an expression of Chiesi Farmaceutici’s social responsibility.
The Chiesi Foundation is active in the international healthcare cooperation sector and aims to contribute to the development of low- and middle-income countries by providing scientific tools and knowledge and supporting projects which fully promote the right to health of those most in need, in particular to improve neonatal and respiratory health.
The Foundation’s projects in these areas include the NEST (Neonatal Essential Survival Technology) model, which aims to reduce neonatal mortality rates by improving the quality of healthcare in countries with limited resources, and GASP (Global Access to Spirometry Project), which focusses on the development of specific clinical skills to diagnose and manage chronic respiratory diseases (asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
