Supporting the Status-less Population in Israel
Supporting asylum seekers, refugees and foreign workers, without national health insurance, by providing medicines through their community clinics.
Increase the number of patients treated and as a result, improving the patients’ quality of life and survival rate.
Teva has committed to a three-year long partnership to provide medicines for the patients in the program.
The status-less population—which includes individuals and asylum seekers who have not received refugee status from Eritrea, Sudan, Ukraine and other countries—is excluded from the national health insurance scheme, leaving them without access to basic healthcare. For these individuals, a few health clinics are often the only safe healthcare option available.
Teva has collaborated with Terem Clinic and Ruth Clinic, as well as Naavat David and Amcha as supporting NGOs, to donate medicines for infectious disease, emergency medicine and more, in order to help meet the most basic health needs of this community.
Results and milestones
In 2022, the program has reached more than 500 patients in need, and Teva donated 60,037 doses of medicine (valued at USD $17,000).
