5 September 2017 -

One of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies, Merck KGaA (ETR: MRK), has reiterated its commitment to its partnership with the Ugandan government via its non-profit subsidiary Merck Foundation, Pharmafile reported on Tuesday.

The partnership aims to bolster the country's healthcare abilities and treatment access in the region, with a particular emphasis in areas concerning cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and infertility.

The 'Merck more than a mother' project was first launched in 2012.

"Raising awareness about male infertility is very important to change the culture as [it] affects women and men equally and yet women are the one who been solely blamed, discriminated and mistreated in their communities," commented Merck Foundation CEO Dr Rasha Kelej.

"The campaign will address this topic and encourage men to discuss openly their infertility and share the journey of infertility diagnosis and treatment with their wives."
