The report showcases results achieved through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities, such as Takeda’s Access to Medicines (AtM) Strategy for patients with the highest unmet medical needs, and the Global CSR Program, which prioritizes long-term commitments to disease prevention, capacity-building, and access to healthcare in developing and emerging countries.
