Committed to sustainable healthcare

The world of health never stands still. And for over a century, neither have we.

In a rapidly evolving world where healthcare and technology are converging, sustainable healthcare is no longer limited to the relevant societal and environmental challenges we are currently facing.
It means devising adaptable solutions that protect patients and caregivers, now and in the future.
It means advancing breakthrough discoveries in research that tackle healthcare’s biggest challenges and changes.
It means embracing resilience at every step of the care pathway to continue doing what we have always done best —providing the right care, at the right place, at the right time.
At BD, we are fully equipped to anticipate what’s next in sustainable healthcare.

WHO’s International Patient Safety Day

At every moment that counts, we will be there providing relentless and resilient support along the patient pathway.
We are in the clinic, facilitating quality sample collection.
We are in the diagnostic laboratory, promoting accurate, rapid testing.
We are in the pharmacy, automating medication prescription, compounding and dispensing processes.
And most of all, we are with the patient, guiding their journey to a positive care experience.
Because at BD, we believe in doing what it takes to advance sustainable healthcare, and on International Patient Safety Day, that means working to reduce medication errors.

Voices of Safety

Every person, patient and healthcare professional has a story that is uniquely their own.
At BD, we see the value in these stories and the voices who tell them; we see that through their voices and experiences, the world of healthcare can change.
We partner with regional patient safety associations to empower individuals to share these stories in our joint fight for better patient care.
Listen to their stories below.


BD Signature Programmes™

As part of our commitment to sustainable healthcare, we have developed the BD Signature Programmes™ to help drive foundational healthcare objectives across our solutions.
These programmes will address specific unmet needs and pain points such as protecting patients and healthcare workers against safety hazards, helping address staff shortages and driving staff satisfaction, removing waste and inefficiencies across healthcare organisations to unlock their hidden capacity.
