Eli Lilly announces $90M investment in Lilly Global Health Partnership
Eli Lilly announced a plan to increase access to quality health care and to improve long-term health for millions of people worldwide, with an aim to reach 30 million people in resource-limited settings annually by 2030. The cornerstone of this goal - known as "Lilly 30x30" - is a new five-year, $90M investment in the Lilly Global Health Partnership, which will improve access to treatment for diabetes, cancer and tuberculosis. One-half of the $90M commitment will come from the Eli Lilly and Company Foundation; the other half will come from company funds. The $90M investment will accelerate the company's and the Foundation's global health work with key international, national and local partners. The Lilly Global Health Partnership will expand current work in diabetes and TB and add cancer as a new therapeutic area of focus. To reach 30M people annually in communities with limited resources - a six-fold increase over the number reached today - Lilly will explore new approaches within different areas of its business, the company added.
