Health Equity

As a leading life sciences Company with unmatched capabilities across a diverse, integrated portfolio, we are uniquely positioned to support our customers, governments and health organizations in address health inequities.


We operate across the global health supply chain, from manufacturing and distribution to service and maintenance. This allows us to offer high-quality, affordable and accessible solutions to qualifying low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).


By working with others, we are helping to create a more democratized global healthcare environment, including making an impact in the management of infectious diseases like HIV/AIDS.

Public-private partnership

We work alongside global health partners, including the World Health Organization, Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), UNICEF and the Africa CDC, to aid target countries with the management of infectious diseases like HIV/AIDS and COVID-19.

Building local capacity


To effectively utilize critical donations, receiving entities must have the appropriate capabilities and infrastructure. At Thermo Fisher, we mobilize quickly when needed to support technical upskilling and capacity building to bridge the gap and equip frontline stakeholders for immediate impact and long-term success.

The Just Project

In the US, COVID-19 has taken a disproportionate toll on people of color and Thermo Fisher was uniquely positioned to respond. We launched the Just Project, a multifaceted partnership with historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) that makes free COVID-19 testing accessible to students, faculty, staff and their surrounding communities. These schools, for generations, have played an essential role in closing America’s achievement gap, including training diverse talent in STEM fields.


Through more than $30 million in instruments, kits and supplies, we have provided the technical expertise to help to build a robust and sustainable testing infrastructure that is now staffed and operated by HBCUs. Onsite labs have been established at eight hub schools which, in turn, support the free testing available to nearly 60 HBCUs nationwide.
