Teva's UK nominated charity is International Health Partners (IHP), specialists in providing donated medical aid to the world's most needy communities. Through International Health Partners, our medicines have reached disaster stricken areas like Pakistan after the flood in 2010 and Haiti following the earthquake in 2010.
We also provide the charity with facilities at our Eastbourne site to make up packs for doctors, which are used in countries such as Tanzania and India.
Our parent company, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, donated $7 million in medicine to International Health Partners for immediate relief to disaster stricken Haiti. Additional medicines were also sent to meet the ongoing needs of the organisations providing health services in Haiti itself.
In the UK we donated more than £200,000 of medicines, including life-saving anitbiotics.
We also matched donations our employees made to UNICEF in aid of the Haiti appeal during February 2010.
In 2011 IHP were awarded the 2011 Queens Award for Enterprise, in the category that recognises outstanding Continuous Innovation over a period of 5 years, which is a fantastic achievement. This award was presented to IHP in the House of Lords by the Vice Lord Lieutenant for London on behalf of HM The Queen.
This award would not have been possible without the support of all of their partners, Teva being one of them. In recognition of our support to IHP, Teva received a Partnership Award from the Vice President of IHP, Anthony Dunnett.

Teva UK Limited has a Payroll Giving scheme which allows employees to donate through their salary, meaning the chosen charity receives not only the donation, but also the tax that would have been paid on the amount.
That helps the charities our employees support get up to 40% more courtesy of Inland Revenue.
Our employees donated around £7,000 through Payroll Giving in 2011, which, after the tax is added back, means over £8,500 was donated!
Community relations play a big part in our corporate social responsibility programme, with the main focus around education and wellbeing initiatives. We commit both time and money to local schools, colleges and health and community projects in the vicinity of our sites.
We also encourage our employees to get involved with their local community by volunteering days at school and raising funds for local charities through their own personal endeavours.
