We are inspired by a shared vision and mission to save and improve lives and have been committed to fighting against the COVID-19 pandemic from the beginning. This includes both our investment in research that could help protect Canadians from this pandemic, as well as supporting the communities in which we work and live in.
Vaccines are playing a crucial role in helping prevent the spread and seriousness of cases of COVID-19, but they alone may not eliminate the virus. To help keep Canadians safe, more tools and treatments are urgently needed to fight COVID-19, which is why we are investing in research for potential treatment approaches that could have a meaningful and direct impact on patients suffering with COVID-19.
Dr. Gretty Deutsch, Vice President, Medical Affairs & Country Medical Director at Merck Canada
As well, our commitment to keep improving the lives of Canadians means we know when we must lend a hand and collaborate across borders and companies. That’s why we have entered a partnership to support the manufacturing and supply of Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine.
Marwan Akar, President and Managing Director of Merck Canada
We have always helped empower the communities we have the privilege to work with. During the pandemic we have invested funds in numerous local Canadian organizations that work on the frontlines. We have also strategically invested funds to ensure that personal protective equipment (PPE) has been available where it has been needed most.
