We are continuing our tradition of supporting the communities where we live and work, focusing on energy efficiency and healthcare.
Improving wellness everywhere
We understand that people want the best without any hassle, whether it is getting the right care for their children or improving their own wellbeing. That’s why we focus on solutions for people everywhere, in all markets.
Your Mouth, Your Heart
The Philips Sonicare website educates consumers about the strong link between oral health and overall health, and heart health in particular.
Health Opportunities for People Everywhere (HOPE)
We are partnering with project HOPE to strengthen community healthcare centers in four major Chinese cities. The aim is to make them better equipped to deal with patients suffering from strokes, heart- and respiratory diseases. The project seeks to do that by improving the transfer of clinical expertise from the bigger municipal hospitals to healthcare centers. Better healthcare centers will attract more patients, relieving the hospitals of some of their healthcare burden. Philips is funding this project and providing technical support.
With our SimplyHealthy@Schools program, we aim to reach primary school children around the world. Through the program, Philips volunteers work with teachers to show pupils simple ways to improve their health and well-being. Topics include hygiene, air, water, and light. Our volunteers also upgrade the lighting at all participating schools by installing energy-efficient lighting solutions.
