    Urban & Rural Pest Control Commitment to Public Health


    Good health is a basic human right

    BASF partners with international organizations such as Rotary International, The Carter Center and MENTOR in the belief that eliminating disease will not only lead the affected regions to better health and to beat poverty, but also empower their people to provide for themselves.

    As a major global corporation, we take our role and our social responsibilities seriously and strive to engage actively with our stakeholders. We think that the more we actively integrate all our stakeholders in dialogue, projects and partnerships, the greater the confidence they place in our business activities.

    Active role in the malaria community

    BASF is an active member of the international malaria community and is represented on numerous working groups and taskforces, including the World Health Organization malaria policy group and working groups on neglected tropical diseases, integrated vector management and long-lasting insecticidal nets.

    We are a private sector delegate on the Roll Back Malaria Board, a member of the advisory board for the WHO Pesticide Evaluation Scheme and a member of the Stockholm Convention Global Alliance for Alternatives to DDT steering committee.
