Takeda aims to contribute to community development by providing people who suffer from diseases with outstanding pharmaceuticals that improve their quality of life. However, before this treatment stage, there is also much that we can contribute at the prevention stage. Examples include research and development of vaccines and other preventative medicines, as well as disease prevention education for healthy people. In emerging markets and other developing countries, it is especially important to raise awareness of the importance of good nutrition and hygiene. We also believe it is important to focus on life after treatment, and on raising the quality of life of patients who have been in long-term care, especially children, for whom support systems are often insufficient. Other areas where Takeda also strives to strengthen the foundations of healthcare in terms of human resources include capacity building of healthcare professionals through corporate-sponsored research grants, and various support initiatives for medical students. In this way, Takeda aims to take a holistic approach to community involvement and development as a global pharmaceutical company, and as a corporate citizen.
