“ Our 242-year history has taught us that creating lasting positive impact not only takes time, but also requires us to constantly adapt and look to the future. There are no quick fixes to global health problems, which are complex, multidimensional and context-dependent. While each of these partnerships will support health systems strengthening in unique and innovative ways, there are two commonalities: an equity perspective focused on marginalized groups and a systems approach prioritizing sustainable outcomes over gains. quickly,” says Takako Ohyabu, Global Head of Corporate Affairs and Sustainability, Takeda. “These partnerships explicitly target marginalized and/or vulnerable groups who lack quality health services and access to essential medicines, whether due to conflict, climate change, natural disasters or socio-economic reasons. We take a long-term view, collaborating with partners with local knowledge and ownership, taking a systems approach to develop resilient and equitable health systems that also address climate change
