Social Impact

For more than 140 years, we have approached our company's business with a deep sense of responsibility to those we serve—patients, physicians and other healthcare providers, shareholders, suppliers, business partners, employees, and the local communities in which we operate. Our greatest contribution to society, however, is to continue to discover and develop innovative medicines. But we extend our reach by being part of the solution for complex global health challenges that disproportionately affect people living in settings with limited resources. We devote our time, resources and expertise to advancing health and improving lives—all with the goal of making life better for people around the world.
