Future Health

The mission of BASF’s Future Health activities is to improve the quality of life for people around the globe through disease prevention. We accomplish this goal by working with the international community, including international health, government and humanitarian organizations. At BASF, we believe that science can be part of the solution to the increasingly complex challenges of feeding and protecting a growing population.
