#37 Fortune 2016 Change the World List Learn More about the List>>   Priority Social Issue Global Health, including Healthcare Worker Safety and Diabetes   About BD BD is a leading global medical technology company that develops, manufactures and sells medical devices, instrument systems and reagents. It focuses on improving drug delivery, enhancing the quality and speed of diagnosing infectious diseases and cancers, and advancing research, discovery and production of new drugs and vaccines. BD’s purpose, Helping all people lead healthy lives, is at its core based on the concept of shared value.   Global Health For more than 114 years, BD has applied its technologies, resources, and institutional knowledge to help address fundamental health issues. The goal of BD's Global Health Initiative is to help strengthen healthcare systems and increase access to healthcare in the developing world. The Global Health Initiative strengthens healthcare systems by leveraging BD resources in four strategic and complementary ways: Providing technical assistance through training and tools that strengthen laboratory systems Increasing access to critical technology on a sustainable and affordable basis Investing in new technologies Collaborating with public and private organizations (BD: Global Health)   Health Worker Safety In the 1980s, rising public health concerns about needle-stick injuries and their potential to transmit the HIV virus and other infections to healthcare workers led BD to develop new technology. In 1988, BD introduced the first safety syringe, incorporating a sliding safety shield to protect the needle after use, reducing the risk of injury and infection. The company paired this innovative technology with global partnerships to raise issue awareness, influence national policies on healthcare worker safety, and train health workers in safe injection practices. At a global level, the incidence of health worker needle-stick injuries has been reduced by more than 50%. BD's safety devices grew from approximately $5 million in revenue (1988) to approximately $250 million in revenue (1999) to $2.1 billion in revenue (2013).  (BD: Shared Value Mini-Case)
