Helping people on their path to better health takes many forms

Through Health in Action, one of the pillars of our Prescription for a Better World Corporate Social Responsibility platform, we support a broad range of initiatives throughout CVS Health communities.

CVS Health and the CVS Health Foundation donated more than $100 million in 2017 through a combination of grants, in-kind product contributions, volunteer hours, and other community investments. We funded disaster relief efforts, smoking cessation programs, and a wide range of organizations focused on understanding illness and improving access to quality health care. As a leader in fighting the opioid abuse epidemic, our commitment takes many forms. Among them, we’ve broadened our relationship with the National Association of Community Health Centers through a $2 million commitment—on top of previous investments-to increase access to medication-assisted treatment and other recovery services. We also expanded our Medication Disposal for Safer Communities Program to a total of 1,550 kiosks, including 750 additional disposal units we are rolling out in CVS Pharmacy locations across the country.
