Lilly Collaborates to Fight NCDs in South Africa

by Karen Van der Westhuizen, Communication Manager of Lilly’s Global Health Programs.

The Lilly NCD Partnership is one of Lilly’s flagship corporate responsibility initiatives. Launched in late 2011, the partnership works in four countries (Brazil, India, Mexico and South Africa) to research innovative ways to tackle non-communicable diseases (NCDs),specifically diabetes.

In South Africa, we partner with the Donald Woods Foundation. The foundation works in South Africa’s most impoverished region, where good roads are rare, most homes do not have basic sanitation and running water, and medical facilities are not easily reached. This 1-minute video captures the invaluable work conducted by the Donald Woods Foundation in collaboration with The Lilly NCD Partnership.
