Created in 2010 by Sanofi Group to capitalize on more than 20 years of commitment to international solidarity, the Sanofi Espoir Foundation aims to reduce healthcare inequalities, particularly among the world’s needy communities.


Its action focuses on three priority areas:

  • fighting childhood cancer in low and mid-income countries
  • reducing maternal and neonatal mortality
  • improving access to healthcare for the most deprived populations

The Sanofi Espoir Foundation is also involved in responding to humanitarian emergencies but focuses primarily on long term partnerships to act on education and prevention, training and access to care.

In 2015, the Foundation coordinated 36 programs, which permitted access to care for about 800,000 people and training for 2,900 health actors in 31 countries.
