Although the Czech Republic is one of the countries with the lowest infant mortality rate, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is not avoided even there. It is still a mysterious cause of death, which is helped to eliminate monitors that trigger an alarm at the moment the child stops breathing or the breathing becomes irregular.
Dr. Max pharmacies have a long-term focus on improving the quality of children's lives: for example, through a program of small grants or by improving the availability of preparations from the mother & child category by offering an assortment of its own Bebelo brand. Now they have decided to get involved in SIDS prevention as well. In cooperation with the Křižovatka (Crossroad) Foundation, through selected maternity hospitals, Dr. Max will provide a total of two hundred breathing monitors to mothers who cannot afford to purchase equipment. We started this week in the Roudnice maternity hospital belonging to the Penta Hospitals chain. Here, too, we fulfilled the motto of Dr. Max corporate philanthropy "... because we know that not only medicines heal" and we will continue in other cities of the Czech Republic.
