Posted December 2008
TO OuR STAkEHOLdERS:
since Hospira’s launch as an independent company in 2004, we have focused our decisions,
resources and strategies on growing our business in support of our vision of advancing
WellnesstM through the right people and right products. our acquisition of Mayne Pharma
limited in 2007 represented a defining moment in this journey. in doing so, we significantly
expanded our specialty pharmaceuticals business, more than doubled our presence
internationally, and welcomed new colleagues and ideas to Hospira. essentially, integrating
Mayne into our broader organization enhanced our ability to meet our stated commitments
to our key stakeholders -- customers, employees, shareholders and communities -- on an
increasingly global scale.
the combined strength of Hospira and Mayne established us as the worldwide leader in
specialty generic injectables with no. 1 positions in the United states, europe and australia.
to support our growing footprint, we also implemented a new operational structure that
fosters a stronger global perspective and promotes greater connections with our
healthcare customers -- Hospira’s primary stakeholder -- and key geographic markets
across the globe.
it is these connections that serve as the ongoing platform for Hospira to provide
innovative products and services for our customers, and will also result in us continuing
to live up to our commitment to another important stakeholder -- our shareholders.
to learn more about how Hospira is advancing our financial goals, please refer to the
current Hospira annual report.
as Hospira has evolved into a global organization, we have strengthened our ability to
work well internally and focus on innovation to meet the needs of our stakeholders. in the
last year and a half, we created the Hospira innovation Center to develop the processes,
culture and change necessary to promote functional and geographic collaboration, and
accelerate innovation across our company.
taking full advantage of the worldwide Hospira infrastructure, our employees take a smart
approach to sharing resources, talents and ideas across teams and continents, stressing
that each employee plays a vital and unique role in meeting the needs of our stakeholders.
With our employees as the backbone of our organization, we have strengthened our
culture, continued to provide innovative products and services to our customers, delivered
solid results for our shareholders and positively impacted our communities in myriad ways.
While enjoying the updates and stakeholder stories in this Hospira Global Citizenship report,
you will not only learn about the considerable progress we have made in living up to our
commitments, you will also find that we have enhanced our already strong foundation,
ensuring that Hospira remains a good corporate citizen for years to come.
best regards,




Christopher b. begley

SuPPORTING THE CHALLENGES OF THE HEALTHCARE INduSTRy
across the globe, hospitals and other healthcare institutions are faced with the task
of caring for patients in an environment of escalating costs, shortages of caregivers and
increasing administrative loads. Despite the realities of this challenging medical environment,
healthcare providers remain steadfast in their focus to offer safe and high-quality patient
care. it is because of this that Hospira is dedicated to offering our customers products and
services that improve the cost, safety and productivity of patient care.
Hospira markets innovative injectable pharmaceutical and medical device solutions to
healthcare providers worldwide. our generic injectable pharmaceutical products help
drive millions of dollars out of the healthcare system. in fact, Hospira is the world’s leading
provider of generic specialty injectable pharmaceuticals, the medications used most
frequently in hospitals.
as the innovator of the world’s first patient-controlled analgesia (PCa) infusion device,
Hospira is a pioneer in offering medication management solutions that help increase the
safety of medication administration. With more recent product introductions, such as Hospira
Mednet safety software and symbiq -- which represents a technological advancement in
infusion device development -- Hospira has focused on making the medication administration
process safer and easier for clinicians to positively impact their productivity.
another groundbreaking Hospira product, the VisiV container, helps hospitals address
safety and reduce waste. VisiV was designed to prevent needlesticks and requires no
overwrap -- decreasing the environmental impact. For hospitals seeking alternatives
to containers containing DeHP [di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate] or PVC (polyvinyl chloride),
VisiV is made from PVC- and DeHP-free materials that provide the thermal stability,
moisture-barrier properties and inertness required for i.V. medications.

PREPARING FOR THE FuTuRE
our two primary businesses -- specialty injectable pharmaceuticals and medication management
systems or MMs -- are primed to not only help Hospira continue to meet our financial
goals, but also to ensure we provide a steady stream of innovative products to our customers.
in 2007, we launched several new specialty injectable pharmaceuticals, including four
compounds from our r&D pipeline. We also introduced 22 compounds already in our
specialty injectables portfolio into additional countries around the world.
We continue to grow our specialty injectable pipeline, which contained 43 molecules at
the end of 2007. in addition, we are evolving specialty injectables into areas that present
considerable opportunities for growth.
our MMs portfolio is evolving too. We’ve transformed our MMs portfolio into an innovative,
software-based business and have expanded this business with new pump platforms such as
symbiq. We are also pursuing additional enhancements for Hospira Mednet and partnering
with hospital information systems providers so that their systems can interface and
share data seamlessly -- adding a further level of safety and efficiency to the medication
administration process. Global expansion is another area of focus for Hospira and we’re
seeing customer interest in some of our newer MMs technologies outside the United states.
Hospira’s total r&D investment in 2007 was $201.2 million, representing a 24.5 percent
increase from 2006.
                                                      ENT R A N CE INTO BIOGENERICS
                                                      at the end of 2007, Hospira received european Union marketing authorization for its
                                                      biosimilar retacrit, which treats anemia associated with chronic renal failure and
                                                      chemotherapy. With the approval, Hospira became the first north american company
                                                      permitted to sell a biogeneric in europe, and launched the product in several e.U.
                                                      countries in 2008.
                                                      Hospira’s entrance into biogenerics -- often referred to as biosimilars, generic biologics,
                                                      follow-on biologics or follow-on proteins -- is a natural extension of our leading
                                                      generic injectable pharmaceuticals business. biogenerics are “generic” versions of
                                                      biopharmaceuticals. they represent an important longer-term growth driver in the generic

                                                      proprietary biopharmaceuticals market to competition. the availability of biogenerics can

       safety software, Hospira Mednet, into its      pure and effective biogenerics. Unfortunately, such a pathway still does not exist, and bio-

Hospira strives to provide employees in every role, function and location with a positive
work environment in which they feel valued for their individual contributions and can
impact the company’s success.
integrity is the most important of Hospira’s four core values, and the culture supports this
value with honest and frequent communication to employees. Hospira encourages an
open door policy, which provides a forum for all employees to bring ideas, issues and
concerns forward. this policy offers employees regular visibility to Hospira’s senior leadership
and, in turn, provides management with a unique and honest view of the workplace.
Hospira uses many communications vehicles to keep employees informed, including
employee newsletters, an annual employee kick-off meeting and manager’s messages. on
a quarterly basis, all employees are also invited to attend “Hospira Huddles.” Huddles are
live meetings led by members of management at all Hospira locations and via conference
calls to field-based employees. after short remarks highlighting the company’s most recent
quarterly results and other relevant and timely topics, employees have a forum in which
to ask questions directly to the presenter. “Huddles” have been so successful that many
of our senior leaders have adopted their own ways to connect with employees by hosting
town hall meetings, small group breakfasts and lunches. in fact, the accessibility of our
senior leadership team is often identified by newcomers to Hospira as a refreshing change
to prior job experiences.

Hospira’s employees are the driving force behind our success and all the company will
accomplish in the future. that’s why ongoing education and development opportunities
are available for employees preparing to embark on new roles, as well as those who simply
want to advance their skills in their current positions.
Hospira offers a robust tuition reimbursement benefit that is highly valued by our employee
base. eligible employees are reimbursed for participation in qualified undergraduate and
graduate school programs. in 2007, Hospira funded more than $1 million in tuition costs
for our employees who attended more than 370 different institutions.
our commitment to ongoing training remains significant. in 2007, on-the-job training
exceeded 198,000 hours and impacted more than 4,400 employees.
in 2007, Hospira made preparations to initiate a number of expatriate assignments to
enhance the ability of employees to thrive in a global company with a strong international
presence. the intent of the program is to provide development opportunities that will
clearly prepare future leaders for the global challenges they will face.
Hospira’s most extensive initiative in the area of employee development was launched
with the introduction of talent Management. talent Management allows Hospira to
focus more than ever on a leadership culture that drives performance. it includes four
components that work together.
· Hospira Leadership Standards – a behavioral “roadmap” of performance requirements
  created to define “success” at Hospira, drive our business strategy and reinforce our
  guiding principles
· Performance Management – a vehicle for improving alignment between individual and
  company goals, enhancing performance feedback and clarifying performance expectations
· Talent Reviews – a series of formal meetings that will help drive decisions to identify,
  rotate, develop and reward top performers and transition under-performers
· Hospira Management and Leadership Academy – a two-track program offering education
  for emerging leaders -- individuals new to supervising staff -- and for more senior
  developing leaders. each track is a five-day, intense, curriculum-rich learning opportunity
  for the participants focused on building strong, growth-oriented leaders able to reinforce
  a culture aligned with our values. since the program’s launch, Hospira has proudly
  sponsored more than 260 participants.
Hospira’s senior leaders were the first to participate in talent Management activities, and
they are accountable for creating a performance-driven culture that reflects formalized
leadership standards aligned with the company’s vision, values and commitment.

                                                        in the United states, the rising cost of healthcare has consistently been an issue of concern.
                                                        as a leader in the healthcare industry, Hospira chose to take a proactive approach in 2006
                                                        by introducing Consumer Driven Healthcare Plans (CDHPs) to our employees.
                                                        in 2007, we continued the transition to CDHP plans. the purpose is simple and reflects
                                                        Hospira’s value of ownership and accountability. the CDHP model allows Hospira’s
                                                        employees to be better educated, savvy consumers of healthcare services, which, in turn,
                                                        helps maintain accessibility and affordability of healthcare for everyone. Hospira continues
                                                        to fund approximately 84 percent of U.s. employees’ total healthcare costs, with employees
                                                        covering the remaining 16 percent. in addition, when we introduced CDHPs, we placed a
                                                        stronger focus on preventive care exams by funding at 100 percent all age-based screenings,
                                                        immunizations and flu shots, as recommended by the U.s. Healthcare task Force.

Hospira mobilizes our collective resources around three major philanthropic initiatives:
Advancing Wellness, Hospira Employee Engagement and Community Investments.
From Hospira’s launch in 2004 through the end of 2007, our company, the Hospira
Foundation and Hospira employees have given more than $40 million in monetary
and product donations to support the global community.

A dVA NC I NG WELLNESS
our company’s philanthropic arm is the Hospira Foundation, a not-for-profit corporation
focused on improving health and wellness in communities we touch. the work of the
Foundation reinforces our ongoing commitment and continuous outreach to the
communities where our employees live and work.
the Foundation offers support and partnerships to national and regional charitable
organizations that promote health and wellness activities associated with our core
expertise, business objectives and competencies. as part of this initiative, we also donate
our products to support humanitarian relief efforts.

       in Pasig City, Metro Manila, founded
       the Hospira Philippines Choir in 2006.
       the choir brings entertainment through
       song to fellow employees during
       company activities and cheer and joy
       to patients in government hospitals
       during holiday seasons.
       in December 2007, through the generosity
       of Hospira employees, the choir collected
       employee donations of kiddie bags,
       goodies and children’s books to share
       with the patients of Pasig City General
       Hospital. Prior to the gift-giving, the
       choir serenaded the patients, and one of
       the hospital’s physicians, Dr. noel Cruz,
       further entertained them with a story-
       telling session using his self-authored
       children’s book.
       it was a very fulfilling activity for the
       choir members and the entire Philippines
       team -- a fitting start and small step
       that they hope to replicate in the years
       to come.

AN d STRONG C OMPLIANCE
Given the important products and services we provide to healthcare professionals and
patients around the world, the need for integrity and accountability -- two of our core
values -- is apparent. because peoples’ lives depend upon our actions and our decisions,
Hospira safeguards our core value of integrity by consistently and resolutely focusing on
ethical behavior in our interactions with key stakeholders and by holding our employees,
agents and contractors accountable for their actions.

O FFI C E OF ETHICS ANd COMPLIANCE
the office of ethics and Compliance (the oeC) is specifically charged with developing
and implementing a strong and effective ethics and compliance program that advances
Hospira’s vision, values and commitment and reduces the company’s ethical and compliance
risks. the oeC ensures Hospira’s programs conform to the U.s. Federal sentencing Guidelines
for organizations issued by the U.s. sentencing Commission, an independent agency in the
judicial branch of the U.s. government. these guidelines define the characteristics of
effective ethics and compliance programs and serve as the foundation for well-constructed
and administered programs across all industries.
                                                        C O dE OF BuSINESS CONduCT
                                                        the oeC is responsible for building awareness of and compliance with Hospira’s Code
                                                        of business Conduct and relevant policies and procedures. the Code serves as a guide and
                                                        ethical compass in support of Hospira’s vision, values and commitment. like a compass,
                                                        the code has eight points -- referred to as the eight Principles of integrity -- that set
                                                        Hospira’s course. the Code reflects the foundation for the trust between Hospira and
                                                        our stakeholders.
                                                        available in nine languages, the Code applies to all officers, employees, contractors and
                                                        agents of Hospira and subsidiaries worldwide. it also applies to all businesses Hospira
                                                        owns or in which Hospira holds a majority interest. the Code helps ensure Hospira
                                                        employees understand what is expected of them, and it is a resource for answers to ethical
                                                        questions. We provide training on the Code to all new employees and contractors and
                                                        offer refresher courses on an annual basis. in 2007, all of Hospira’s new employees who
                                                        joined the company as a result of the Mayne acquisition received training on the Code.

                                                        Hospira also has a global ethics and compliance helpline where employees, contractors

                                                        since our inception, Hospira has focused on holding our company’s leadership and

                                                        interactions with customers, suppliers and competitors are appropriate. Key company
                                                        requirements include, but are not limited to, global policies on antitrust, anti-boycott,

                                                        training, monitoring, auditing and meeting with cross-functional teams to review reports
                                                        and share knowledge about new laws and developments are some of the activities that
                                                        occur to ensure compliance with these requirements.
                                                        For example, the oeC has trained all U.s. commercial employees on the company’s

                                                        federal anti-kickback laws and related state laws. the oeC also has issued an anti-bribery
                                                        policy and initiated anti-bribery training for our employees whose responsibilities reach

When it comes to documentation, Hospira’s Quality system uses a corporate documentation
structure that ensures employees comply with Hospira’s standards and that products
conform to established requirements, laws and regulations. the documentation system
establishes an effective framework of two-way communication between management
and employees.
the structure of the documentation system consists of a series of controlled documents
that include the Quality Manual, corporate-level policies and procedures, standard operating
procedures, Quality records, Quality plans and product specifications. these documents
ensure that processes are effectively planned, implemented and controlled.
to promote the ongoing improvement of products, services and processes, Global Quality
uses trending assessments, management reviews and Corrective action and Preventative
action (CaPa) programs. assessments of Hospira’s global facilities and support functions
are conducted at planned intervals to verify that the Quality system is in compliance with
established requirements and to determine its effectiveness.

today, the Quality team is becoming increasingly proactive and prevention-oriented.
Hospira’s customers include hospitals, home-care settings, wholesalers/distributors,
government agencies, pharmacies, doctors’ offices and many others. the Quality team is
focused on continually learning how we can improve our products by understanding
the experiences and needs of our diverse customer base. the use of bar coding and the
introduction of Hospira Mednet are examples of the Quality team’s commitment to meeting
customer needs.
as part of our ongoing commitment to quality, the company’s Global supplier Quality
team is tasked with certifying suppliers and ensuring that they provide materials and
services that meet our specifications and standards. the supplier quality program at Hospira
oversees suppliers that provide raw materials used to manufacture pharmaceutical and
device products and third-parties that supply finished products distributed under the
Hospira name.
Hospira collects, monitors, analyzes and trends data from many sources including
customer complaints, auditing, and process and product monitoring. there are many
active projects utilizing many investigative and process improvement tools. ongoing
programs, such as six sigma, lean Processing, Value stream Mapping and Kaizen events,
are employed to provide assurance and continued capability of processes and controls
to demonstrate product conformance and to support early detection of potential issues.

                                                        2007. biogenerics are generic versions of currently marketed biopharmaceuticals. in the
                                                        United states, there is currently no regulatory pathway for their approval.
                                                        by the end of 2007, the U.s. senate Health, education, labor and Pensions (HelP) Committee
                                                        passed legislation to create the approval pathway. the House energy and Commerce
                                                        Committee had publicly committed to advancing biogenerics legislation. as legislation

                                                        Hospira continues to advocate for legislation with key coalition partners at the Center for

in 2006, California passed legislation requiring all prescription drugs sold in the state
to contain a manufacturer-initiated electronic pedigree serialized at the lowest unit of
sale by Jan. 1, 2009. Drug pedigrees provide the tracking data of a drug’s route from the
manufacturer to the customer, assuring that the product has not been diverted in an
unlawful manner.
the California board of Pharmacy (boP) has responsibility for enforcing the pedigree law
and has the authority to delay the implementation date of the law to January 1, 2011.
in 2007, Hospira worked with GPha to delay the implementation date until 2011 to help
ensure industry-readiness for the law. in addition, through membership in GPha, Hospira
advocated for the passage of the Dorgan amendment as part of the FDa amendments act
of 2007. if it had passed, the Dorgan amendment would have created a national drug
pedigree requirement at the lot level preempting the California law.

Generic Drugs: in 2007, the FDa’s office of Generic Drugs opened negotiations with the
generic drug industry to establish manufacturer user fees for generic drug applications.
Hospira, along with other members of GPha, participated in those negotiations, which
are ongoing.
Medical Devices: throughout 2007, Hospira worked with advaMed, the world’s largest
medical technology association, on updates to the FDa’s user fees for medical device
applications as part of the Medical Device User Fee act of 2007 (MDUFa iii). the passage
of the medical device user fees will allow the FDa to reasonably increase its fees in
accordance with the expectations and metrics outlined for the FDa to achieve in support
of the industry.

Hospira reports lobbying expenditures to the U.s. Congress in accordance with the
lobbying Disclosure act of 1995. in 2007, Hospira spent $411,000 in lobbying expenses
toward advancing the company’s legislative priorities. reports outlining Hospira’s lobbying
expenses can be viewed here: http://lobbyingdisclosure.house.gov. Hospira’s lobbying
costs include the salaries and benefits for all employees registered to lobby the U.s.
government; use of lobbying consultants; support for lobbying contacts such as planning
activities and research; support staff; and the portion of trade association fees associated
with federal lobbying.

in support of our vision, values and commitment, Hospira has pledged to nurture a
sound workplace and global environment. Hospira adheres to an environmental, health
and safety management system (eHs Ms) that integrates eHs considerations into our
business decisions.
the eHs performance metrics discussed herein are driven by the eHs Ms framework for
setting goals, incorporating stakeholder input and continuously improving using the
“Plan, Do, Check, act” model. adherence to the management system is verified during
internal eHs audits, with input from external experts.

this report provides eHs information for the full-year 2007, the most current data available
at the posting of the report and the year in which we acquired Mayne Pharma limited.
the next update of the citizenship report will highlight full-year 2008 information.
Health safety and environmental regulations vary from country to country. the data
in this section has been gathered from our various operations and is accurate to the best
of our knowledge. Where referenced, “operations” refers to Hospira manufacturing
locations worldwide.
the metrics and targets proposed in 2005, the year we established the Hospira eHs
baseline, for safety data have not changed. restatement of the baseline, and combined
legacy Hospira and Mayne safety metrics, are in the process of being completed and will
be reflected in the next reporting cycle.
as the environmental metrics and targets Hospira proposed in 2005 were for manufacturing
locations, these targets have been restated to include Mayne manufacturing operations.
the results of this restatement are reflected in the environmental data graphs and table 1
on page 33. the 2007 environmental metrics also include former Mayne operations.

Hospira facilities recycled more than 17 million pounds of materials in 2007. each facility
establishes its own recycling program based on local capabilities. Materials that are
recycled include: aluminum metal, ferrous metals, rubber, plastics, glass, toner cartridges,
batteries, circuit boards, plastic foam, wood pallets, cardboard and paper. Computers are
returned to the manufacturer for recycling when they become obsolete.

HyBRId VEHICLES FOR u.S. SALES FORCE
in 2007, Hospira expanded our hybrid vehicle pilot program to replace all automobiles
and sport utility vehicles in the U.s. sales fleet with hybrids. the first phase began in
fall 2007 with delivery of vehicles beginning in 2008. We anticipate providing the
energy-related data from U.s. sales fleet activities in the next reporting cycle.
the Hospira sales organization in Canada also added hybrids to the leased vehicle fleet
options in 2007.

the differences in year-to-year GhG emissions values are primarily due to the acquisition
and divestitures of manufacturing plants. Hospira began collecting GhG emission data for
activities other than manufacturing in 2006. However, since this type of data collection
is relatively new, it will not be reported until several years of data have been collected to
ensure data uniformity and consistency.                                                                                                                    ENV IRONMENTAL, HE A LT H

the Western Climate initiative (WCi) is a collaboration launched in 2007 by the governors
of arizona, California, new Mexico, oregon and Washington to develop regional strategies
to address climate change. the WCi is identifying, evaluating and implementing collective
and cooperative ways to reduce GHGs in the region. the WCi is concentrating on the
large industrial and power-generating industries that contribute significantly more
GHGs than other industries. Hospira does have a manufacturing site in California, as well
as sales and service organizations operating in WCi states.
