More Than 400 Children Paint Clear Picture of Teva’s Commitment to Patient Safety

“Safe Teva Drugs” by Michal, age category 10-12, Poland

More than 400 children from around the globe put crayon to paper to share their personal interpretations about the importance of patient safety and high-quality medicines as part of the company’s Art of Patient Safety Children’s Artwork Contest, a special campaign to celebrate Teva’s 120th anniversary in 2021.

We invited Teva families to have conversations about the work we do every day to make safe and effective medicines, and the high priority patient safety plays in strengthening the trust between our company and the people who rely on the quality of our medicines, including patients, customers, caregivers, healthcare providers, health authorities and others.

“Art is a universal language,” said Sebastian Horn, Head of Global Patient Safety and Pharmacovigilance. “And children have a pure and honest way of representing truth. We wanted to encourage family conversations about Teva, its history, and our role in global health and patient and medicines safety.

“Trust is an important foundation in relationships, including relationships with brands,” Sebastian added. “Trust in Teva starts with our medicines and our patients and we take that very seriously.”

Twelve winners in four age categories ranging from four to 15-years-old were selected based on effectiveness in illustrating the importance of patient safety, artistic expression and emotional impact.
