We’re committed to working with all stakeholders to make medicines more affordable. The first step is transparency.
Our founder Colonel Eli Lilly said, “Take what you find here and make it better and better.” And now more than ever before, better science means better lives, not only for people who take Lilly medicines, but also for our shareholders, employees and communities in which we work and live.
Today, we live in an amazing era for medicine. And our efforts to advance pharmaceutical science bring tremendous value to health care, as medicines offer the most effective—and cost-effective—solutions available to prevent and treat some of the world’s most urgent medical challenges.
In 2016, Lilly added to its history of innovation with new treatments for psoriasis and cancer—for a total of seven new Lilly medicines since 2014—and continued progress in our research pipeline. In 2017, we’ll continue to advance promising new treatments in multiple therapeutic areas, including diabetes, oncology, immunology, Alzheimer’s disease and pain.
