The Sozosei Foundation was established in 2019 as the philanthropic arm of Otsuka America Pharmaceutical, Inc. (OAPI). The name Sozosei means “creativity” in Japanese. Our Japanese heritage is manifest in the Foundation’s fundamental values and day-to-day operations. We are guided by a spirit of “Jissho,” or “proof through execution,” as we employ our unique assets and skills to contribute to the well-being of patients, families, providers, and each other. Thanks to OAPI, we are able to fuse a profound understanding of the healthcare landscape with an equally profound sense of corporate social responsibility to advance our goal of building healthier communities.
Otsuka America Pharmaceutical, Inc. is a healthcare company that researches, develops, manufactures, and markets innovative products in the categories of neuroscience and nephrology. OAPI operates with the philosophy: “We defy limitation, so that others can too.” Since 1973, OAPI has helped patients push past the limitations of their disease and achieve more than they thought possible each day.
