Pharmaceutical company Mylan announced it is working to provide assistance to people affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria in Florida, Puerto Rico, and Texas. The company has sent over 6 million doses of medicines-including anti-infective, cardiovascular, endocrine and metabolic, gastrointestinal, hematological, and respiratory medications-through its charitable distribution partners, Direct Relief, Americares, and Heart to Heart International.

Additionally, Mylan chartered a cargo aircraft to Puerto Rico carrying more than 36,000 pounds of essential items needed by local residents and Mylan employees. The company has also opened its manufacturing plant to employees and those in the currounding community to provide food, water, and other assistance, coordinating with local authorities.

In Texas, Mylan has partnered with SBP, a nonprofit organization devoted to national disaster recovery, and has donated more than $80,000 to assist statewide efforts. This monetary donation was made possible through generous employee contributions and Mylan's corporate match.


In all affected areas, Mylan is offering housing and providing direct financial assistance for Mylan employees in need.
