Corporate Social Responsibility

Adcock Ingram believes that being involved in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities is a reminder that we have a duty towards the development of our society and that life must be lived fully and with dignity. We have a responsibility to support and give back whatever we can to our disadvantaged communities.

We are truly passionate about people and the communities we serve. We believe that health is the true future wealth of our nation. For this reason, we have brought hope to many South Africans who are beneficiaries of our CSR programmes. We engage in meaningful partnerships to extend our goal of contributing to the development of our society and continuing the quest of ‘Adding value to life’.

SA Medical and Education Foundation (SAME Foundation)

SAME Foundation implements instructive programmes aimed at improving healthcare and education in poverty-stricken communities through high-impact, focused projects. Some of the projects that were implemented were the rehabilitation of a paediatric and neonatal wards in Leratong Hospital, a hospital that serves over 1.5 million people and a wound care clinic in Tembisa Hospital, a hospital that services over 280 000 patients and also serves as a referral hospital to 20 clinics. SAME Foundation led the Tembisa Hospital intervention that ensured that the previously neglected space is extended and hospital wards were separated, to ensure that patients who are infected are separated from those that are not infected. A dedicated area for children was also created to reduce cross infection and to make the healing experience for children not to be traumatic. The new Wound Care Clinic alleviates the pressure of over-capacity and deliver exceptional healthcare to the community, with a Paediatric Children’s Unit and Adult Unit.


Grace Vision

Grace Vision provides eye care and screening in the OR Tambo District Municipality, King Sabata Dalindyebo Local Municipality and Nyandeni Local Municipality in the Eastern Cape. The programme, which delivers mobile primary eyecare and screening, serves the youth, leaners and communities in these areas. Over 60 patients are served at Zithulele Hospital (cataract surgeries are also undertaken at this hospital) as well as the 12 surrounding public health clinics. To date, over 10 000 people have been screened and treated, and about 4 000 pair of glasses have been distributed. The goal of the project is to ensure that no learner in these areas is disadvantaged because of visual impairment and to ensure that with a clear vision these learners are granted an opportunity to fulfil their full potential. These programmes are implemented with the support of the Eastern cape Department of Health.


Smile Foundation

SMILE Foundation, in collaboration with the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Unit at the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital; George Regional Hospital and Adcock Ingram hosted a smile week were facial reconstructive surgery was carried out for the benefit of 15 children.

About 146 children living with anomalies such as cleft lip, cleft palate, nose or ear condition, facial paralysis, burn wounds and craniofacial abnormalities have had transformative and life changing procedures undertaken at various academic hospitals in SA.


Josh's Big Year



Josh’s Big Year follows this intrepid journey through the good and the bad and is illustrated by countless photographs of all the wild and wacky creatures so few ever get to see.

We can never truly control future, but we can drop it a few hints occasionally. Over the coming years I plan to travel the world in intricate detail, studying and photographing the local flora, fauna and culture of the lesser known corners of our planet. My goal is to raise awareness through my writing and photography of struggling species and habitats in dire need of conservation in such remote places as Madagascar, Papua New Guinea, Congo and all over South America.
