A major goal at the Pierre Fabre Laboratories is to improve the quality of life for patients. This effort goes hand in hand with the very essence of any pharmaceutical laboratory's mission to treat patients. Within this scope in the field of cancer research, Pierre Fabre Oncology supported a project in 2013 run by the Leucémie Espoir Paris Ile de France Association to equip hospital onco-hematology departments with exercise bikes.

Association for Prostate Tumor Research

The Association for Prostate Tumor Research (ARTP) was founded after a realization that fundamental and clinical research was too underdeveloped in France to meet a medical challenge as significant as prostate tumors, one of the main causes of morbidity and mortality in men after the age of 40. The ARTP’s main goal is to help to address this worrying situation.

French Rheumatism Association (AFLAR)

AFLAR aims to advance key goals in the fight against rheumatism:

  • Increase the diffusion of specific knowledge and know-how, from information and education to advances in scientific research and prevention,
  • Improve the day-to-day quality of life for rheumatics, and help them become actively involved in their treatment,
  • Raise awareness of the major human and socio-economic costs of rheumatisms,
  • Improve coverage of healthcare costs, prevention and research resources.

We provide essential products and medicines to the Tulipe Association. As a non-governmental organization governed by the Law of 1901, Tulipe combines donations from healthcare companies to provide an emergency response to the needs of people in distress during acute sanitary crises, natural catastrophes and conflicts. Its intervention involves making rapidly available emergency kits with new healthcare products that are suitable to requirements on the ground.

 Africa - Klorane Bébé partners with AMREF (African Medical and Research Foundation)

Klorane Bébé supports the Stand Up For African Mothers campaign spearheaded by the African Medical and Research Foundation (AMREF), Africa's leading public health NGO, and is helping train 15,000 African midwives to reduce mortality rates among mothers and babies in Africa.
Every year, over 162,000 women die during pregnancy or childbirth in Sub-Saharan Africa where the risk of mortality for mothers is 1,000 times higher than in France. Yet 80% of these deaths could be prevented by trained health professionals, specifically midwives, because every trained African midwife is able to help 500 mothers each year, as well as thousands of babies who will be born under better conditions.
AMREF and Klorane Bébé launched two initiatives as part of their new partnership. First, Klorane Bébé donated a portion of its proceeds* to pharmacies; then the partners came up with a unique way to encourage people to become involved online, by writing a special song called the Lullaby for Life. Written and sung by singer Inna Modja, an AMREF ambassador, the lullaby can be downloaded from Facebook for free starting in October. Klorane Bébé is giving €1 to AMREF** for every download. Not only will the beautiful song allow children in France to gently drift off to sleep, it will most importantly help the children of Africa come into this world safely.
* €1 for every promotional Duo Baby Gentle Foaming Gel sold in October
** For the first 10,000 downloads

Germany - Shared electric vehicles for Fribourg University Hospital
On September 5, 2011, Pierre Fabre Germany and other sponsors provided Fribourg University Hospital with a shared electric vehicle. This car will make it easier for a hundred or so cancer patients who cannot attend the hospital each week for chemotherapy sessions to remain at home. It is the second “social car” to be sponsored by our German affiliate.
