How we create value

Our mission is to improve the quality of human life by enabling people to do more, feel better, live longer.

To deliver our mission, we must align all our inputs behind our strategic priorities. We harness our primary inputs set out below, to strengthen our ability to make products that satisfy unmet needs, offer cost effective healthcare options to our customers, and increase access to our vaccines, medicines and consumer healthcare products.

Our business model is designed to deliver a range of outputs for patients, shareholders and society. In addition to direct benefits for patients, consumers and shareholders, a successful business will help build strong societies and make direct and indirect contributions in the countries where it operates through tax, employment and charitable support.

If we do this well, it will lead to profitable and sustainable performance. In turn this allows us to generate value and returns for our shareholders and enables us to reinvest in the business.
