Abbott stands with the international community condemning the war and the violence in Ukraine against its people and calls for peace.

Our top priority is supporting the safety and wellbeing of our Ukrainian employees and we are taking all steps we can to assist them.

To support Ukraine and Ukrainian refugees, the Abbott Fund is donating $2 million to humanitarian organizations including International Medical Corps, Americares and Project HOPE to deliver emergency and primary health care services, supplies and basic needs for people in Ukraine and in border countries serving Ukrainian refugees. We were able to ensure ample supply of our health care products in Ukraine and we will do everything we can to continue serving the Ukrainian people, including donating products based on our ability to do so through appropriate channels.

We join those calling for peace and will continue to monitor the situation to see how we can further support the health and wellness of the Ukrainian people and our employees.
