We aim to positively impact the health of 2.5 billion people over the next 10 years. Our bold ambitions for patients are reflected in new commitments to growth and a step-change in performance. 

We prioritise innovation in vaccines and specialty medicines, maximising the increasing opportunities to prevent and treat disease. At the heart of this is our R&D focus on the science of the immune system, human genetics and advanced technologies, and our world-leading capabilities in vaccines and medicines development. We will focus on four therapeutic areas: infectious diseases, HIV, oncology, and immunology.

Patient group funding

Our Work with Patient Organisations

Patient organisations play a vital role in Irish healthcare. As well as providing accurate information and support for patients in Ireland, they also act as representatives for patients and ensure their voices are heard and needs are understood. Patient groups campaign for change on issues that affect the lives of patients and those that care for them. Some also carry out vital research into the causes and potential treatments for specific conditions.

How we work with patient groups

How we support these groups is very important to us at GSK: Ensuring we are transparent about any support we provide and respecting the independence of the organisations are our guiding principles. For example, we always ensure that any contribution we make does not exceed more than a quarter of a group’s annual income. We are very clear there is no commercial influence attached to our decision making process around how we support any patient group nor would we ever ask for any commercial support in return. We want to build sustainable and trusted relationships in the best interest of the patient organisation over the long-term: we have worked with some of our patient groups for over 15 years.

The supported studies programme

Supported Studies are conducted by an external sponsor with GSK's support. GSK reviews proposals received at set points throughout the year. If you are a researcher interested in submitting a proposal or for more information on supported studies, please go to GSK's Supported Studies Program.

Compassionate use

GSK recognises that there may be circumstances when it is appropriate for healthcare professionals to give their patients investigational medicines to treat life threatening or seriously debilitating diseases/conditions where no satisfactory alternatives exist.

For more information on compassionate use of a GSK investigational medicine, please visit our Compassionate Use Portal

Independent Medical Education

At GSK, we are proud supporters of independent and transparent medical education for healthcare professionals in Ireland.

What does this look like?

  • Outcome driven:
    We want to support education initiatives with clear, measurable outcomes so that the benefit to patients is measurable and demonstrable.
  • Patient Focused:
    We also want to concentrate on disease areas in which there is a genuine patient need and in which we have a mutual scientific interest.
  • Arms-length:
    We have no involvement or influence on the education development, logistics or participant selection.
  • Need:
    We focus our financial resource on programmes that have the greatest potential to enable us to get ahead of disease together.

Why GSK supports medical education?

Supporting medical education has always and continues to be a very important part of what we do at GSK. The healthcare professionals who prescribe the medicines we develop are an integral part of a patient journey. Healthcare, particularly medicine, is an innovative and fast evolving area. We want to support healthcare professionals in ensuring they can access high quality, up to date medical education to help them make the best decisions for their patients.

Why independent?

At GSK, we have changed how we support HCPs: instead of directly funding healthcare professionals, we are finding new, more independent ways to do this. These changes do not affect our commitment to medical education but instead mean the decisions about ‘what’, ‘how’ and ‘who’ are made by independent organisations and not by GSK.

It is very important that this support exists, particularly in a healthcare system under severe resource constraints. But we believe it is equally important that this is done transparently and free from perceptions of any potential conflicts of interest. The combination of HCP and patient confidence in healthcare plays a critical role in how patients feel and how they respond to treatment so it is very important that these relationships are based on trust.
