Aesara the philosopher postulated that there are three parts to the soul – intellect, spirit and desire. Team AESARA believes with the gift of intellect, comes the responsibility to drive social change. To create change, we must have a strong spirit and desire to make a difference. At AESARA, we are committed to contribute a portion of our profits to support a foundation to help sustain the Earth’s ecosystem and improve the human condition. In addition to offering financial support to worthy causes, we are compelled to apply our subject matter expertise to contribute to health policies and decisions. Health economics and outcomes research skills have been expertly applied across the pharmaceutical industry to improve patient access to life saving medicines. At AESARA, we believe that we have a responsibility to apply the same health economics and outcomes research expertise to help developing countries in health policy decisions with the overall goal of improving access to healthcare globally.
We are committed to donating 10% of our annual profit to the AESARA Foundation. In addition, our staff can also donate to the AESARA Foundation with matching of 50% by the CEO.

In 2017, we were moved to channel our giving to the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico. We contributed to the funding allowing AEROBridge to send in a total of 112 tons of generators, medicines, water and food, including 250,000 children’s meals by air and in shipping containers. This effort was coordinated through Fundación Comunitaria de Puerto Rico, (Community Foundation of Puerto Rico) under the leadership of our colleague, Dr. Nelson Colón. We will continue to focus on Puerto Rico in 2018 by sponsoring an onsite team project to help with the rebuilding.
Please join in our effort to lend a hand to our neighbors in Puerto Rico.
One hundred percent of the donation from the following GoFundMe page will go directly to the citizens of Puerto Rico.
Affecting Health Policy
To further live out the AESARA Foundation vision, in 2018 we are leveraging our core health economics research expertise to contribute to the advancement of global health and access. We are developing a data visualization program called Athena with various levels of sophistication to dynamically convey high need areas and potential drivers so policy decisionmakers can better customize interventions, allocate resources and improve their population outcomes. For example, Athena could help visualize for the policy decisionmakers for a disease of concern: who is the at-risk population, what is the current care pattern, what are the gaps in care, and potential societal impact of an intervention program. Come back soon to learn more about Athena and how you could be involved!
