Daiichi Sankyo Company and Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd on Wednesday announced an initiative to sponsor mobile healthcare field clinics in India, Cameroon and Tanzania as part of their global social contribution activities.

The initiative will be implemented in India through the Ranbaxy Community Health Care Society, a non-profit organisation established by Ranbaxy, and in Cameroon and Tanzania through an international NGO, Plan Japan. Daiichi Sankyo has committed ¥200 million over a five-year period for the project.

“India is among the countries with the highest number of infant and maternal mortalities in the world, and Cameroon and Tanzania have some of the highest infant mortality rates and maternal mortality ratios among developing countries in Africa.

“All three countries also confront the lack of easy access to healthcare services. This initiative will contribute directly in improving the lives and health of citizens who lack such access in the three countries,” said a statement.
