Since 2006, Abbott and CARE have partnered to support disaster relief efforts around the world immediately following an emergency.
In 2019, Abbott, its foundation the Abbott Fund, and CARE announced a three-year, $1 million program to screen, diagnose, prevent and manage noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) for people who remain displaced two years after armed conflict in Marawi City, Philippines. The partnership is among the first of its kind to address NCDs in areas affected by disasters, conflict and other humanitarian challenges. This partnership will help to raise awareness on the prevention and control of hypertension, diabetes, and obesity. Learn more about this pioneering effort of providing relief for chronic diseases.
