Vaccines help protect people from infectious diseases at every stage of life. Our portfolio of marketed vaccines is the broadest in the industry. It includes more than 20 vaccines that help protect people around the world from a range of diseases and infections throughout their lives. For many decades our vaccines have protected millions from diseases like whooping cough, polio and measles. Today we deliver approximately two million vaccine doses daily, and 40% of the world’s children receive a GSK vaccine each year. We are proud of the impact our vaccines continue to have on the health of hundreds of millions of people around the world.

We are targeting several new launches by 2026, including our vaccine candidate for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) in older adults. We will support these goals by drawing on our strong manufacturing capability and scale, as well as our global reach and commercial execution.

Specialty medicines

Specialty medicines are prescribed by specialist healthcare practitioners. For GSK this includes our cancer medicines with life-changing potential for patients including ovarian cancer, endometrial cancer and multiple myeloma. We’ve accelerated this research and currently have three marketed cancer therapies and a further nine assets in development. We’re also developing medicines for immune-mediated conditions. We are global leaders in developing medicines for respiratory disease and HIV. Having pioneered the first HIV treatments in the 1980s, our goal now is to limit the impact of HIV on people’s lives by treating, preventing and ultimately curing it.

General medicines are usually prescribed in primary care or community settings by general healthcare practitioners. For us, this includes our inhaled medicines for asthma and COPD, antibiotics and medicines for skin diseases. Every day, these medicines improve health and make life better for millions of people all over the world. For more than 50 years, we’ve helped millions of people with respiratory conditions to breathe more easily, including our first inhalers in 1969, and we remain an industry leader in respiratory science.
