Our Focus

Access to Health

Barriers to access and quality care exist in many parts of the world. We have a role to play in helping ensure our products are accessible and affordable to those in need.


To harness the knowledge and insights of our diverse workforce, we take a thoughtful and strategic approach to workplace inclusion, invest in employee development, and care for their well-being — physical, emotional and financial.


As a global company, we recognize that our actions have a direct impact on our planet.

Ethics and Values

As a global health care leader, our work requires us to cultivate strong relationships based on trust. This means listening to and learning from our stakeholders and communicating openly about the decisions we make and the outcome we achieve.
