Mylan's School Access Program - DC

Epinephrine is the only first-line treatment for anaphylaxis, a potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. Several years ago, we recognized that epinephrine auto-injectors needed to be as accessible as defibrillators are in public spaces. So Mylan advocated for legislation to permit “undesignated” epinephrine auto-injectors in schools – meaning a prescription could be in a school’s name rather than in a child’s name and any individual experiencing an anaphylactic emergency would have access to the epinephrine auto-injectors. Today, 48 states have adopted such laws, and Mylan has donated nearly 1 million epinephrine auto-injectors to more than 73,000 schools around the country through the school access program.

Since the program began, epinephrine auto-injectors provided through the program have been used at least 7 times in District of Columbia in the school setting.
Over the past five years, Mylan has provided 1,906 free epinephrine auto-injectors to 273 schools in DC, ~70% of the state’s schools.
