AstraZeneca Canada Ltd.
Sponsorship overview
AstraZeneca is one of only a handful of pure-play biopharmaceutical companies to span the entire value chain of a medicine from discovery, early- and late-stage development to manufacturing and distribution, and the global commercialization of primary care, specialty care-led and specialty care medicines that transform lives.

Our primary focus is on three important areas of healthcare: Cardiovascular and Metabolic disease (CVMD); Oncology; and Respiratory, Inflammation and Autoimmunity (RIA). We are also active in the Infection, Neuroscience and Gastrointestinal (ING) disease areas.

There are so many good causes that need support. Based on our experience we feel that the best way we can make a meaningful difference and improve the health and quality of life for Canadians, is to focus on the areas we know best.

Our community support is focused on projects and initiatives that:

1. Improve healthcare in our local communities;
2. Promote science education and skills among young people;
3. Improve access to healthcare for vulnerable populations; and
4. Are connected to the giving and volunteer activities of our employees.

In 2010, AstraZeneca launched the Young Health Program (YHP) in many countries around the world. As a global, long-term community investment initiative, YHP aims to improve the health of vulnerable young people around the world — now and into the future.

In Canada, we aim to improve the mental and emotional well-being of disconnected and vulnerable youth ages 10 to 19. Only one in five young people who need mental health services currently receive them; and 70% of mental health problems have their onset during adolescence. But we also know 70% of mental health cases that appear in youth can be solved through early intervention.

We cannot do this alone. So we have partnered with three leading Canadian organizations – mindyourmind, Physical and Health Education Canada and Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada – and are actively working with them to address this issue. Together, we hope to reach 50,000 youth through this program by 2014.
