BD has given a strong focus on addressing unmet global health and society needs. The company’s volunteer programs (Labs for Life and Volunteer Service Trips) are designed as a way for BD to share the collective knowledge in its 118-year memory bank in the global arena and at the same time provide opportunities for today’s associates to “live” our corporate purpose of advancing the world of health. Members of the BD teams travel from their home countries to help strengthen healthcare capacity in some of the most disadvantaged regions.
BD partners with nongovernmental organizations or with local PEPFAR countries and Centers for Disease Control offices who have experience working with local healthcare providers and laboratories and are aware of their needs and limitations. The program has the full support of BD’s executive leadership, from the CEO on down to the managers at our locations throughout the world.
The BD volunteers spend a week or two in the designated country, where they share their expertise and skills with local care providers and laboratories. They serve as laboratory technicians, trainers, construction workers, educators, primary healthcare providers, photographers, nurse educators, information technology technicians and program coordinators. The variety of activities reflects both the complexities of delivering healthcare in resource-poor regions and the many ways BD as a company impacts global health and shows it’s support for the achievement of the SDGs goals. The associates who participate in the VST program not only make contributions to society but also benefit personally from their experience.
