Grants And Donations

Allergan shall consider applications for grants for Medical and Educational Good & Services (MEGS) in line with the relevant criteria set by the Company from time to time. Any such decisions shall be made at Allergan’s absolute discretion and shall be final and binding.

The criteria reflect the requirements of the ABPI (or IPHA/ABHI) Codes of Practice and include those established by the Allergan Management Team as part of the annual budgeting process that will apply for that financial year. Consideration of a Request will be applied impartially by a non-commercial MEGS Committee.

Allergan Medical will consider applications for MEGS grants which pertain to the field of breast reconstruction and augmentation and facial aesthetics. Our focus this year is on MEGS which will enhance patient care and deliver the highest standards of care across each of our therapy areas.

Allergan Neurosciences, Urology and Gastroenterology will consider applications for MEGS grants which pertain to the field of neurological, urological and GI disease. Our focus is on MEGS which will enhance patient care and deliver the highest standards of care across each of our therapy areas.
