CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Corporate Social Responsibility

Our commitment to patients and healthcare professionals extends beyond our efforts to research and develop quality medications. Once a medication is approved, we focus on providing information on safe prescribing practices, responsible use, storage, and disposal of those medications and others in their classes.

We do more than develop medications. Each year we demonstrate our commitment to the communities we serve through partnerships, grants, and volunteerism. Being a responsible corporate citizen is a priority for us and our efforts are focused in two main areas:

  • Community engagement
  • Addressing the opioid addiction crisis

Community engagement is supported through healthcare, education, and economic development grants and programs. In the past year, we have supported our communities through the following efforts:

  • Subsidizing a local school lunch program
  • Hosting a local school supply drive
  • Remodeling a local classroom
  • Participating in a national blood drive
  • Providing pandemic flu kits to a national service organization
  • Collecting supplies for local organizations that support homeless communities
  • Supporting local economic development organizations
  • Providing in-kind donations to a local domestic violence crisis center, a hospice house, a community college, and a mental health recovery center

For close to two decades, Purdue has engaged in more than 65 distinct initiatives to stem prescription opioid abuse in close collaboration with states, communities, industry partners, and law enforcement agencies. These initiatives have focused on:

  • Recovery to work models
  • Neonatal abstinence syndrome research and support
  • Recovery peer support programs
  • Measurable prevention education
  • Medication-assisted therapy availability in emergency departments
  • Overdose reversal and harm reduction
  • Supporting efforts to reduce prescription drug diversion through Prescription Drug Monitoring Program improvements and integrations
  • Increasing awareness of prescription drug take-back programs and publishing results from a survey study on this topic
