PEOPLE FACE REAL BARRIERS TO LIVING HEALTHY.
WE’RE FINDING NEW ANSWERS – IN OUR INDUSTRY,
TECHNOLOGIES AND COMMUNITIES.
Good health is the foundation for all we can do in life.
But many people face deep-rooted, structural barriers that stand in the way of good health. Interconnected factors in our everyday lives impact health and lead to health disparities, including the environment, structural racism and the lack of economic opportunity, access to healthcare and education.
At Abbott, we're focused on advancing health equity, working across our business and in partnership with others to remove barriers that prevent people from living healthy lives. To deliver results, we've laid out long-term targets for our business as part of our 2030 Sustainability Plan and we've made equitable care a key principle for our community partnerships.
Find out how we’re bringing health equity to life across three areas: advancing diversity in healthcare, creating health tech solutions and removing barriers to health in communities.
The healthcare industry should reflect the diverse communities we all serve. But significant gaps remain. From research and patient care, to STEM careers and small businesses, we're working to help build a more diverse healthcare industry that can help everyone, in every community, to live a healthier life.
Done right, health technology holds tremendous potential to overcome barriers to care. We’re intentionally designing access and affordability into the way we research, develop and deliver our life-changing technologies and products – which is helping us reach more people in more places than ever before.
An important part of Abbott’s work to advance health equity is working side-by-side with the communities we serve to address disparities and remove the barriers that prevent people from living healthy lives.
