About Us

The Sanofi Collective

Foundation S strives to create healthier futures for generations to come

We are driven by a singular purpose: to improve the lives of vulnerable populations by catalyzing community–based solutions, expanding access to medicines, and mobilizing collective action. 

Since our launch in 2022, we have made bold strides in helping to address some of the biggest global health crisis, particularly for those living in low - and middle-income communities. With a focus on four key commitment areas, our vision is to improve the lives of vulnerable people by listening to those on the frontlines, supporting community-based solutions, and strengthening community health resilience for future generations. 

Our Approach


Empowering communities through locally led programming, strengthening community capacity, building long-term resilience, and driving global change.

Continuous Learning

By adopting a comprehensive approach to assess our impact, Foundation S is dedicated to continuous learning and strategy refinement.


This approach highlights our commitment to evidence-based decision-making and achieving tangible, positive outcomes in line with our mission to improve the lives of vulnerable communities.
