GSK Partners With NGOs To Support Health Care Workers In LDCs

Dow Jones/Wall Street Journal reports that GlaxoSmithKline announced Tuesday it has partnered with three non-governmental organizations to address the shortage of primary health care providers in least developed countries (LDCs). According to the article, GSK will work with AMREF in East and Southern Africa, CARE International U.K. in the Asia Pacific, and Save the Children in West Africa. The goal “of the investments will be to improve health outcomes by supporting frontline health workers who operate in these countries” (Baba, 5/24).

According to a GSK press release, these partnerships are “part of [the company’s] commitment to reinvest 20% of profits” made in LDCs back into the countries (5/24).
