Our Approach

Our approach to social impact starts with our medicines and our commitment to expanding access to those medicines to as many people as possible. We extend our reach by being part of the solution to complex global health challenges that disproportionately affect people living in settings with limited resources.

We expand our impact even further by working to strengthen communities around the world. We invest our resources, time and expertise to drive social impact, with a focus on improving health and education. We encourage and support our employees’ efforts to give and volunteer in ways that help make life better.
