April 7 is chosen worldwide as a date to put health in debate in society. Perhaps we are in one of the most important moments in history to talk about the topic. We are living in a critical moment of demands and many adaptations. The whole world calls for better days and better health for everyone.
The health and economic crisis imposed by COVID-19 has left profound marks and despite the immeasurable consequences, it has taught us for more than a year. We, at Prati-Donaduzzi, are doing our part in this difficult time by keeping our mission and producing doses of health for Brazilians. Of course, with all the care so that our team works safely.
We did not stop at any time. I say that we have no right to do so. On the contrary, we are producing even more drugs at this time we are badly in need. We have a firm commitment to the health of the population, which is strengthened when we allow treatment to those who need it so much with our medicines, which are known for the purple box.
Here I would like to remember how much the medicines mean to people. In addition, at that moment, medicines, hospitals and health professionals cannot be missing. We are still such a young laboratory in the market, but we have 27 years of history of many achievements. We are proud of making a difference in the health of millions of people every day.
We produce over 12 billion doses annually. We are the pharmaceutical industry that produced the most azithromycin in the country in the last year, one of the most suitable drugs for the treatment of COVID-19. In addition, we offer treatment with our dipyrone, ibuprofen and acetaminophen, for example. In the generic segment, we are responsible for 20% of the doses available on the market.
These are just data, but far beyond numbers, we are talking about people. We assist in the treatment of Covid-19 symptoms and treat patients with diabetes, hypertension, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, depression, schizophrenia daily, among many other pathologies. Our work is important for keeping the physical and mental health of millions of Brazilians
Taking care of the population's health is a serious act, a seriousness embraced by each of our more than 4,500 employees who share the mission of producing medicines. Through this work, we have more than 400 presentations on sale, found in more than 55 thousand pharmacies and 36 thousand basic health units.
Providing health is our mission. In every corner of our Brazil, there is a Brazilian taking care of his/her health with our medicines. It is our purple pride represented in every dose produced and consumed. For the future? We will produce even more, always taking better care of your health!
