AN EXPANSIVE HEALTH NETWORK
Our mission to enhance the health and well-being of Indians extends beyond our products to innovative methodologies and platforms across distribution channels and online learning. Our cold chain network ensures that temperature-sensitive products reach growing populations in every corner of India. And, through our Knowledge Genie e-learning programs, we help healthcare professionals across the country stay abreast of the latest developments in medicine.
A NATIONWIDE IMPACT
Often, the farther a town is from a big city, the larger the need for better access to healthcare. That’s why we established True Care: to offer extra-urban expertise that enables us to reach beyond the bigger cities and deliver quality healthcare.
Along with business models that are tailored to meet customer needs, our work in the area of public-private partnerships enable the government to provide screening and management of non-communicable diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, thyroid and dyslipidemia.
ENHANCING HEALTH THROUGH KNOWLEDGE
In addition to providing quality products, we’ve developed programs that empower people with tools and knowledge, including:
- Continuum of Diabetes Care ensures that the 65 million diagnosed diabetics have the tools they need to treat their diabetes, and the 77 million high-risk pre-diabetics have the resources they need to prevent it.
- SureMoms makes parents more aware of the nutritional needs of growing children and provides advice through a toll-free helpline.
LOCAL R&D FOR LOCALIZED SOLUTIONS
Over 130 Abbott scientists conduct research and development to meet specific Indian needs. These scientists work passionately to advance health by addressing the country’s unique challenges. Some of our contributions include developing locally relevant nutrition products for women, children and diabetic patients; treating epilepsy in children; raising awareness of thyroid conditions; combating gingivitis and more.
IN INDIA, FOR INDIA
For over 100 years, Abbott in India has endeavoured to be closer to our consumers. This is why Abbott invested in manufacturing plants for its biggest businesses—nutritional products and pharmaceuticals. Abbott Nutrition’s first green-field plant in India will be operational later this year. And our pharmaceuticals business fulfills most of its product requirements in India through two local plants—Baddi in Himachal Pradesh and Verna in Goa.
A LEGACY OF EXCELLENCE
From creating an excellent workplace to making a positive impact on the health of infants, children and adults, we’re proud of the work we do in India. See some of the awards we’ve received that showcase our commitment to excellence in everything we do.
MAXIMIZING THE HEALTH OF OUR CHILDREN
In India, 325 million people receive rice through the public distribution systems. To help Indian families get the nutrition they need to thrive, our scientists reformulated a grain that looks and tastes like rice, but is packed with vitamins and nutrients that are missing in rice.
