Our work

 

To make healthcare more accessible for all, Philips Foundation deploys Philips’ expertise in innovative and technology-enabled solutions, strengthens community and primary healthcare at local level and fosters healthcare delivery models that are scalable, financially sustainable, and affordable. Our focus areas in the healthcare sector are addressing the rise in non-communicable diseases (such as cardiovascular and respirsatory diseases), improving maternal and child care, and enhancing the effectiveness of acute (emergency) care in underserved communities around the world.

 

Below are some of our successful projects that demonstrate how we are improving access to healthcare and drive sustainable change.
