Partner since 1991
As a longstanding partner of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, Merck has supported UNICEF's work through in-kind product donations, workplace-giving campaigns, and employee matching gifts.
River Blindness Program
Merck is one of the U.S. Fund's largest in-kind supporters through its donation of Mectizan—a drug used to fight river blindness, which begins with a parasitic infection that can lead to loss of sight and carries severe economic and social consequences. Merck is working with organizations like UNICEF to distribute the drug to all who need it.
