Horizon Pharma and Americares forged an exciting new partnership in 2017. Together, we are working to advocate for greater collaboration between the corporate and nonprofit sectors and improve the health of people affected by poverty and disaster—here at home and around the globe.

By helping us to drive health equity and access and strengthening health systems across the country, Horizon is investing in the long-term health and well-being of millions of people.
Stepping Up & Stepping Out
As the lead sponsor for the 2017 Global Health and Development Symposium, Horizon used its leadership platform to advocate for greater integration of philanthropic and humanitarian principals into business models, partnering with Americares to spread the message. Also in 2017, Horizon sponsored Americares Airlift Benefit and members of their staff joined Americares in visiting program sites in Guatemala.
