CPhI Announces Charity Partnership with International Medical Corps

October 4, 2017

CPhI Worldwide

CPhI Worldwide, organized by UBM, has announced a new dedicated charity partnership with International Medical Corps UK. The collaboration will see UBM extensively promote International Medical Corps across the global pharma community, with a range of fundraising and customised sponsorship packages. 

International Medical Corps UK was selected in light of its vital work in delivering lifesaving healthcare and medicine on the frontlines of conflicts, natural disasters, famines and disease outbreaks. Spanning more than 25 countries, their work includes providing vital aid and supplies in hotspots such as Syria, South Sudan, Yemen and Afghanistan.

The charity specializes in delivering rapid support in crisis settings, often within just a few hours, and go where the needs are greatest. Donations will support worldwide relief, recovery and development projects such as midwifery training, emergency nutrition, clean water, improved sanitation and vaccination campaigns. They also enable International Medical Corps’ wider training efforts to equip local people with the knowledge and skills to be their own best First Responders.

UBM is supporting the charity by encouraging its 100,000+ database to provide sponsorships via a variety of available charity packages and direct donations. Donations can be of any monetary value or in-kind while the charity packages range from €995 ($1,168) to €3995 ($4,690), with 100% of the sponsorship going directly to International Medical Corps. 

To further incentivize the pharma industry, CPhI Worldwide will also provide a range of free advertising and promotion opportunities at the annual exhibition – the world’s largest pharma event – with a captive audience of more than 42,000 pharmaceutical professionals and industry press. CPhI will also facilitate pharma companies in the donation and distribution of vital medicines and vaccinations.
