The priority of the program is classified into three key aspects – people, planet and society, in an effort to drive global change where Medela has the greatest impact among employees, customers and partners.
Annette Brüls, CEO of Medela worldwide affirms that “We are excited to introduce new initiatives and reaffirm our commitment to parents, patients and babies, and health care professionals by expanding Medela Cares and joining the United Nations (UN) Global Compact initiative.
