Valeant Pharmaceuticals Donates $250,000 To The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence

The pharmaceutical company is committed to donating a portion of its Medicis® and Obagi® product sales every quarter for a combined donation goal of $1 million in one year.

NEW YORK, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Valeant Pharmaceuticals North America, LLC, today announced it has donated $250,000 to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV).

"NCADV is thrilled to be working with Valeant as a partner in our efforts to end violence in the home," said Rita Smith, Executive Director of NCADV. "Corporations have the ability to increase the awareness of resources and information about domestic violence to a much larger audience than we can alone, and as a result, together we can make a difference in so many more lives of people who are struggling to get free from the violence."

According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 85 percent of domestic violence victims are women, and 1 in 4 women report experiencing domestic violence in their lifetimes. Because Valeant's most important objective is to serve its stakeholders, the majority of which are women, the decision to support a cause like NCADV's came easily.

"Valeant's partnership with the NCADV provides us a tremendous opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those impacted by domestic violence," said Ryan Weldon, Executive Vice President for Valeant Pharmaceuticals. "We make these efforts on behalf of our employees and the consumers and healthcare professionals that support this cause by using our products. We hope this collaboration will continue to grow and enable the NCADV in its mission to end domestic violence."

Valeant partnered with NCADV in October 2013. To date, the partnership has helped 19,000 women by supporting NCADV in:

  • Expanding relationships with associations that provide services to victims of violence
  • Developing partnerships in the creation of information and materials addressing specific health issues and intimate partner violence
  • Expanding topics of health and wellness materials for victims and survivors of domestic violence
  • Creating training materials for service providers on how to best serve survivors struggling with health and wellness issues

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization).
