In its effort to build a healthier Philippines, Sanofi Philippines turned towards empowering
mothers and spotlighting their critical role in managing their family’s health. The global
pharmaceutical company recently launched their new campaign entitled Panatang Sanofi with
the Pinay matriarchs at the heart of their advocacy.
“The mother is the cornerstone of the Filipino family. She is caring and selfless when it comes
to attending to her family’s health,” said Amal Makhloufi Benchouk, Country Lead of Sanofi
“This is the kind of lifetime commitment we strive for in Sanofi as we build a
healthier Philippines. There is no greater embodiment to our panata than our beloved mothers.”
Makhloufi was one of two speakers during the recently concluded online discussions entitled
“Healthier/PH Sessions: Continuity of Care for a Healthier Philippines,” where she exchanged
thoughtful dialogues and shared insights in front of an audience consisting of moms.
“As moms, we cannot afford to be sick or else who will take care of the family?” exclaimed
Broadcast Journalist and the event’s moderator, Niña Corpuz. “A lot of us have to really be more
proactive. Its really better to be informed and to be educated about potential health concerns so
that we know that what we’re doing is the best thing for our family.”
In response to the disruption that the pandemic has caused across the country’s healthcare
system as well as a growing fear and apprehension towards seeking medical consultation for
risk of contracting the virus, the Company has initiated programs in order to deliver better care.
The Company has reinforced its Empower Program—a program for patients with diabetes; as
well as launching WeHealth, a program that aims to connect patients with doctors, at any time
“What the Empower Program ensures, especially during this pandemic, is the continuity of care
for persons with diabetes,” Makhloufi explained. “They will be provided with holistic care and
linked to the appropriate healthcare experts who will stay in constant touch and even do weekly
check-ins with the patient.”
Speaking on the recently launched WeHealth, the Sanofi Executive explained that the program is
proof of the company’s unwavering commitment and panata to ensuring that families
have access to the proper care they deserve.
“WeHealth is an e-Health Ecosystem that aims to connect Filipinos with their doctors or health
service providers from the safety of your own home and this can be crucial during the pandemic
because you’re eliminating the risk of exposure,” Makhloufi intimated.
“Even before the pandemic, Sanofi Philippines has been aiming to bridge the gaps that many
Filipino families face when it comes to accessing consultation and treatment,” the Country Lead
shared. “This is where we want to play a role and it’s part of our mission to build a healthier
