Vestergaard is a family-owned global health company dedicated to serving people in vulnerable situations around the world, most of whom live in low- and middle-income countries.
We’re determined to prove that the private sector plays a crucial role in solving the world’s biggest public health challenges. That’s why our entire innovation platform is devoted to creating scalable solutions for the most vulnerable people in often the most extreme situations to show the world that doing good is good business.

Vestergaard’s innovation in disease control textiles is fuelled by our humanitarian entrepreneurship to create a healthier planet.
Our life-saving solutions fight malaria and neglected tropical diseases, prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS, decrease incidence of diarrheal diseases, as well as enhance food security.
We believe that true innovation of life saving products is created at the intersection of our passion to drive global change and our cutting-edge engineering or what we call Passioneering®. Within this unique passion-driven creative space we engineer human-focused solutions, designing game changing products and building programs that deliver real social, environmental and public health impact.
Keenly aware that timely delivery of our products and services impacts lives, we have established state-of-the-art production facilities and flexible supply chains to quickly produce products at scale. We ensure rapid delivery to end users through strategic distribution networks in concert with local governments, aid agencies, NGOs, retail markets and business entities. And, we encourage dialogue with the people who use our products to drive adoption and optimize impact.
Vestergaard is committed to defining the role of the private sector in doing good. We believe that corporates can and should have responsibility at the core of their missions. On the operational front, we have been a member of the UN Global Compact since 2007 and embrace its code of conduct to protect human rights, maintain fair labor practices and safe work environments, respect employees and business partners, defend the environment and root out corruption.
We approach challenges with an “everything is possible” attitude and push the boundaries on business as usual to find more effective solutions and smarter ways to address global health and development problems. Vestergaard values immersive engagement, diverse opinions and expertise from the private sector, public sector experts, scientists and engineers we work with to develop high quality products and sustainable solutions.
We make considerable investments in scientific research and development to spur the creation of new products and to refine current ones. We rely heavily on data-driven evidence, in the lab and in the field, and encourage independent verification by third parties. We are also committed to raising industry standards to ensure the best products reach the people who need them.
