Founded in 2005, the Chiesi Foundation is a non-profit organization, expression of the Chiesi Farmaceutici's social responsibility.
In the Foundation, ethics and knowledge merge with the aim to promote health and alleviate the suffering of patients affected by respiratory and neonatal diseases.
To accomplish this mission, the Foundation focusses on the promotion of science and solidarity, by developing two main intervention programs:
- Scientific research program, to support biomedical research projects of particular scientific and social relevance
- International cooperation program, to contribute to the reduction of inequalities and to promote the full realization of the right to health for the population in low and middle income countries
Both programs are exclusively focused on chronic respiratory and neonatal diseases.
