We ask each of our 99,000 employees across the 115 countries to share our mission and consider how what they do can help all those people who rely on the products we make. It is why every day our scientists search for new ways to improve the treatment of diseases and illnesses. And it is why we have been pioneering new solutions that allow us to make our products available to those who need them, wherever in the world they live and whatever their ability to pay.

We are a business, so we need to do this in a sustainable way. But in doing this well, we deliver a profitable and sustainable performance. This in turn allows us to generate value and returns for our shareholders, while maintaining the substantial investment we make into the research and discovery, manufacturing, supply and distribution of our products that ultimately delivers value to patients and society.
