Merck Capacity Advancement Program

Our Programs

Through our Merck Capacity Advancement Program, we are striving to improve access to better diabetes, cancer, hypertension and fertility care in under-served regions.
By educating and training medical students and healthcare providers from the start, we want to basically strengthen the local capacities and enhance clinical management processes. The goal is to raise awareness for these health conditions as well as to support healthcare systems with the measures to prevent, diagnose and manage them effectively.

Since 2012, we have successfully cooperated with universities in several different regions around the globe. By the end of 2016, more than 20,000 medical undergraduates and postgraduates in partnership with African and Asian universities benefited from European accredited clinical chronic diseases management training, seeking to equip them with skills to better manage and prevent these diseases.
And the story continues: Merck Foundation is planning to target more than 30,000 students by the end of 2018 expanding to more African, Asian, Latin American and Middle Eastern countries with special focus on non-communicable diseases such as hypertension, cancer and fertility management.
