Patient organisation funding

Non-profit organisations founded by patients, care-givers, family members and health professionals are important stakeholders for GSK. 
They engage with healthcare providers, governments, the media, and patients to promote improved treatment and services for patients. They also campaign on issues that affect patients’ and care-givers’ lives, including increasing access to quality medicines, services and information on disease. Some carry out research into the causes of and potential treatments for specific conditions.
We support patient organisations across the globe and details of this funding are provided in PDF or by linking you to further information on a market's local website.
