Health Equity

What every patient deserves

Through The IBD Project, Takeda seeks to elevate diversity and build trust in equitable IBD care. Together, we can help ensure that people living with IBD have a fair opportunity to pursue the disease management path that makes the most sense for them.


The IBD Project in action

We have active partnerships with organizations devoted to health equity and equitable care for the communities they serve, including the Association of Black Gastroenterologists and Hepatologists (ABGH), Color of Gastrointestinal Illnesses (COGI, formerly COCCI), the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation (CCF), the LGBT Health Workforce Conference, the South Asian IBD Alliance (SAIA), and others.

We seek opportunities to amplify the message of health equity and ways to mitigate social determinants of health (SDOH) factors that can contribute to inequitable care. This takes shape in many ways, including presentations at healthcare conferences, creating and sharing educational materials on the topic, and more.

A partnership between the National Urban League and Takeda helps to raise awareness, knowledge, and action about social determinants of health (SDOH) and the barriers to accessing timely diagnosis and treatment. Takeda also supports Remote Area Medical through a multi-year funding initiative to expand the capacity of free pop-up clinics open to those in need.
