Improving Global Health

Too many people, especially the most vulnerable, still lack access to the medicines and care they need.

Our commitment to social impact inspires how we tackle complex global health challenges. Through the policies we promote and the actions we take, we work to develop and scale sustainable solutions.

We’re exploring novel approaches to access and collaborating with leading health organizations and providers, regulators and governments. This includes finding new solutions that help address the affordability of our medicines and strengthening healthcare systems.

Globally, we’ve established an aggressive goal – Lilly 30x30 – to improve access to quality health care for 30 million people, each year, by 2030. We focus on people living in communities with limited resources, including those who might not be reached by Lilly’s traditional business model.

Reaching our 30x30 goal will take far more than philanthropy. It requires a stronger mix of creative approaches across our business and with our partners that help expand access for more people.

We focus our 30x30 effort in three key areas:

  • Pipeline: Discovering medicines and repurposing internal assets and legacy products for diseases that disproportionately affect people in resource-limited settings

  • Programs: Strengthening and creating new programs that help improve access to Lilly medicines

  • Partnerships: Building partnerships that strengthen health systems, increase access to medicines and improve care
