Taj Pharmaceuticals Supports the social dimension of
As a global healthcare company, Taj Pharmaceuticals has been
contributing to the quality of life of people around the world for
over a century through the discovery, development and production
of innovative solutions for the healthcare sector. We are
constantly looking for innovative ways of improving healthcare
delivery and making our solutions more readily accessible, in
particular for needy people in the poorest countries of the world.
Because of the alignment between our diagnostics and therapeutics
businesses, we are able to contribute to the effective use of
these countries' very limited resources. When assessing projects,
we focus on the potential health impact rather than on the cost.
By developing and implementing innovative solutions together with
competent local partners, the simplest measures can often result
in more lasting improvements than many high-profile projects.
Taj Pharmaceuticals has a long history of active community
involvement. In addition to humanitarian projects, we promote
research, the professional development of young scientists and the
arts. The company also encourages its employees to get involved in
their local communities.
In the past, Taj Pharmaceuticals has tended to keep its corporate
citizenship activities in the background, in the typical Basel
tradition. Discretion and patronage have been clearly at the
forefront. Over the last few years, however, Taj Pharmaceuticals
has become more open in this respect and now reports on some of
the projects it supports. Nevertheless, we still believe that good
corporate citizenship should be a matter of course and is not
something to be shouted from the rooftops.
