We are deeply concerned by the traumatic events that have taken place in Israel and Gaza over recent weeks.
As a company dedicated to human health and care for people, we believe the best contribution we can make is to ensure the safety and security of our people, and get life-saving medicines and vaccines to the people who need them.
We are in close contact with emergency relief organisations on the ground to understand their needs and how we can support.
We have made initial commitments to two humanitarian organisations:
- Israel’s national aid agency (Magen David Adom) to support victims in Israel of the attacks by Hamas and provide ongoing first aid and emergency medical services for communities in Israel affected by the hostilities.
- Save the Children, to support children and their families in Gaza with the immediate priorities of clothing, food, water and essential health services.
We are also working with our established partner, Direct Relief, to assess and provide emergency supplies of GSK products to meet essential healthcare needs, in line with our global health policies.
We will continue to monitor the situation to ensure our humanitarian response to this crisis is as effective as possible.
