We strive to create healthier futures for generations to come

We are driven by singular purpose, to improve the lives of vulnerable communities by focusing on locally led programs, supporting community-based ideas, and mobilizing collective action.

As the world continues to evolve and modernize, vulnerable populations still struggle for equitable access to healthcare.

Today, an estimated 2.5 billion people have limited access to quality healthcare and the number is expected to increase as the worlds’ population will approach 8.5 billion by 2030.  It’s time we re-evaluate our partnership with society and rethink how we approach philanthropy.

Foundation S-The Sanofi Collective was launched by Sanofi in May 2022 with the aim to improve the lives of vulnerable populations by catalyzing community–based solutions and expanding access to medicines. We are committed to four priority areas: childhood cancer, climate change and its impact on health, neglected tropical diseases and humanitarian relief.  But we can’t do it alone.

We believe that through collective action and collaboration, Foundation S can have the greatest impact to help communities around the world. And our Think and Do Tank philosophy is our road map.

  • The “Think Tank” signifies our commitment to work with the right partners to address the greatest health gaps with innovative and transformative ideas.
  • The “Do Tank” turns the ideas into actions, supporting tangible solutions through program funding, cross-sector collaboration and the mobilization of Sanofi’s employees around the world.  

Sustainable impact can only be achieved by working with local communities and strengthening local infrastructure and capacity. Foundations S will also serve as a medium-term incubator for innovative community ideas and projects that align with one of our key commitment areas.
