Centene Corp. is responsible for positive Humankind Value, with much of its positive value coming from Healthcare R&D ($33.6 B), Economic Value ($20.4 B), and Pharmaceuticals ($15.0 B). Healthcare is a central component of our measure of Humankind Value, as a large contribution to modern life expectancies has come from the last 150 years of medical innovation. The company produces economic value by offering to consumers goods and services that they value, paying employees for their labor in producing these goods and services, and providing value for shareholders. The value associated with Healthcare R&D and Pharmaceuticals includes the impact of an estimated 1,007,929.9 additional years lived by people worldwide. The Humankind Value of this company can improve with reductions in Calorie Conversion (-$2.5 B) and Opioid Abuse (-$2.3 B). Economic Value is attached to this company as a result of its direct business activities. Healthcare R&D, Pharmaceuticals, Calorie Conversion, and Opioid Abuse are mostly or entirely a result of supply-chain relationships.
