What we're doing.
We have presence in approximately 80 countries, with leading positions in Japan and the U.S., respectively the third and first largest pharmaceutical markets in the world. We will deliver highly innovative medicines and transformative care for more people globally.
Why we're doing.
It's estimated that one in three people in developing countries can't get essential medicines on a regular basis. Even in countries considered developed, patients who have to pay for medical treatment out of pocket often find it hard to access or afford the healthcare and medicines they need. Geographic hurdles hinder remote populations, substandard healthcare infrastructures limit reliable diagnoses, and precise medical knowledge is restricted to a small number of specialists. These barriers make it difficult to treat those in serious need.
While improvements in care, clinical innovations, and drug deliveries continue to advance, access to these advancements remains an underlying challenge to the health of many people around the world.
