AstraZeneca Product Donations
AstraZeneca's product donation and patient assistance programs make its medicines available to those who cannot afford them, either free-of-charge or at reduced prices. In 2009, AstraZeneca donated a total of USD 786 million in product. The total spend on charitable contributions was USD 96 million (this includes the figure for 'employee commitment' which is defined as 'total company spend to support employee working days committed to company endorsed community activities'. The Employee Commitment figure does not represent a value assigned to the employee time committed).
