Acting alongside patients
Helping improve quality of life
Helping improve quality of life
The explosion in chronic illnesses and cancers, in addition to the rise in risk factors linked to our increasingly sedentary lifestyles, reinforces the need for long-term support and preventive action as early as possible.
The Pierre Fabre Group has been providing support to health care professionals for years and takes action alongside patients, giving them the possibility to play a more active role in caring for their health or treating their illnesses.
This commitment alongside health care professionals and patients is honored through:
- Our company foundation: The Eczema Foundation
- Support in setting up regional health care projects
- Fighting against a sedentary lifestyle with Adapted Physical Activity (APA) health care programs
The Pierre Fabre Group corporate foundation
Because eczema is one of the most common skin conditions, because it significantly lowers the quality of life for millions of children and their families, and because much research is still required to unravel all the mysteries.
Acting to lighten the load of illness
Eczema Foundation is a Pierre Fabre Group corporate foundation dedicated to atopic eczema. Since 2004, it has been working to provide patients and families with information on the condition and its treatment, to lighten the load.

Support for regional health care projects
The Pierre Fabre Group helps run regional public health care projects. The aim is to help improve the treatment of patients, in line with local needs and in collaboration with health care professionals, institutions and patient organizations.
The regional health care project managers for the Pierre Fabre Group support awareness-raising, prevention and detection actions tailored to patients and patient associations.
These projects may be applied to chronic illnesses such as type 2 diabetes, respiratory illnesses, urinary incontinence, benign prostatic hyperplasia or lung, bladder, breast and skin cancers.
Each health care project supported by the Pierre Fabre Group is governed by agreements
Adapted Physical Activity
based on health and physical condition
Adapted Physical Activity, based on health and physical condition is a global public health care priority for fighting sedentary lifestyles
Responsible for 5 million deaths worldwide according to the WHO, a sedentary lifestyle is considered the main cause of 20-30% of serious diseases such as cancers, diabetes and cardiovascular conditions.
To counter this devastating trend, the Pierre Fabre Group supports French doctors in the prescription of adapted physical activity for their patients.
Since 2012, the Pierre Fabre Group has been promoting physical activity among doctors, as a route to good health, well-being and beauty for all.
Physical activity, a treatment in its own right
Taking up a regular physical activity adapted to the health of each individual can prevent and treat chronic illnesses.
Adapted Physical Activity based on health and physical condition has been recognized as a treatment since 2015 by the "Sport on prescription" amendment in the context of the French bill to modernize the health care system.
In line with our mission, the Pierre Fabre Group encourages and supports the prescription of physical activity as a treatment in its own right.
