Our Commitment During COVID-19

Monday, April 13, 2020 18:00

A Company Statement (updated May 6, 2020):

At Sunovion, we have taken and will continue to take appropriate actions to ensure as safe and healthy working environment as possible for our employees, contractors and other stakeholders. As usual, Sunovion can be reached via the Contact Us section of our website for various types of inquiries. As patients are at the center of everything Sunovion does, we are offering valuable tools, resources and information to help patients at this time. Additionally, we are connecting people in the U.S. who request additional support related to mental health to top advocacy organizations for COVID-19 specific mental health resources.

Sunovion Pharmaceuticals is committed to giving back in the communities where the Company’s employees work and live around the world. As the COVID-19 situation evolved, Sunovion mobilized to contribute to community relief efforts and assist with medical supply donations to address increasing health care needs.

Global Support For Populations Affected, First Responders and Health Care Workers

Support has been directed to first responders, health care workers, and people and communities vulnerable to the physical and mental health impacts of COVID-19. Sunovion has provided a significant donation to the Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) COVID-19 Response Fund. This fund supports nonprofit organizations responding to the pandemic among the most vulnerable populations, as well as preparedness, containment, response and recovery activities for those affected and for the responders.

Medical Supply Donations and Support for Health Systems

In partnership with MassBio, Sunovion contributed to the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) to bring donated medical supplies and resources to the State’s healthcare institutions so that they can continue to test and treat patients with COVID-19. The Company donated cases of personal protective equipment including respirators, masks, safety goggles and gloves, as well as protective suits, gowns, and shoe covers. In New Jersey, Sunovion donated safety masks to the Office of Emergency Management for distribution to the health care system. In Canada, Sunovion has joined forces with Innovative Medicines Canada to set up a COVID-19 fund to support the most urgent needs and communities across the country, beginning with a shipment of safety masks for front-line health care providers. Additionally, following a call from the government, a number of Sunovion’s UK team members are serving as volunteers to support the community and the National Health Service (NHS).

Addressing Food Security Needs

In the U.S., Sunovion has partnered with its food service vendor to provide food donations to the United Way of Tri-County and has provided financial support to the Greater Boston Food Bank and Community Foodbank of New Jersey, which have a key role in distributing food and grocery products to member agencies that serve people experiencing food insecurity throughout their respective communities. In the UK, Sunovion has delivered food donations to a food bank in London.
