Save the Children Fund
In 2015, we entered into our third year of Orange United – a global project in collaboration with Save the Children Fund. The objective is to meet the health needs of children under the age of five years, in three core areas: immunisation, nutrition and healthcare provision.
In Nigeria, we joined the rest of the GSK world in raising funds for this Initiative. All contributions by employees are doubled by the Company. Employees also have the opportunity to donate on a monthly basis for as long as they desire.
GSK sponsors twenty children of the SOS Villages of Nigeria (Isolo and Owu Ijebu) and since 2004 has spent of over N40m providing for their education and upkeep. Every year, GSK employees donate and set aside a day to visit the children and show them love.
Our Pulse programme offers us the opportunity to use our expertise to solve healthcare challenges at home and abroad. Volunteers gain new experiences and skills and, in many cases, a deeper understanding of patient or consumer needs. From 2013 to 2015, employees of GSK Nigeria volunteered for the programme and were placed with NGOs abroad. We also received visitors in Nigeria from all over the GSK world.Follow our PULSE volunteers
In GSK Nigeria, we aim to address health needs and are aligned with our strategic priorities and our values.
Lymphatic Filiariasis (LF)
GSK is an active partner in one of the world’s biggest and boldest public health initiatives the international effort led by the World Health Organisation (WHO) to rid the world of Lymphatic Filiariasis (otherwise known as elephantiasis). Our global commitment is to donate 600 million tablets of the required drug each year until LF is eliminated. GSK Nigeria, in partnership with our parent company, is responsible for the coordination of the donation to beneficiaries in the country.
African Family Nutrition Website
As part of our drive to improve the quality of human life, GSK launched a website tagged ‘African Family Nutrition’, which is a one-stop for nutrition queries. The objective of this website is to ensure that the right knowledge about children’s nutrition is provided to mothers through experts. This knowledge is made available through integrated (online and offline) digital channels.
In 2015, GSK sponsored the project plus in conjunction with Pharmacists Council of Nigeria (PCN). Project Plus is an initiative that is aimed at fighting product counterfeiting and also to ensure that Nigerians at the grassroots have access to original drug products. Project Plus seeks to tackle the menace of counterfeit and poor quality medicines in Nigeria by educating Patient Medicine dealers and sellers.
