Good HealthWatch video
‘Good Health’ is always our goal. We see medicines not just as molecules, but as means to attain good health. Being in the pharmaceutical industry we realize our unique role, as well the ethical and moral imperative, to help patients regain good health as quickly as possible and to promote wellness among them.
‘Can’t Wait’ reflects our commitment to act with speed to find innovative solutions that address the unmet needs of patients, and accelerate access to much needed medicines to large numbers of people around the world.
It is this belief that has driven us to define our purpose: to accelerate access to affordable and innovative medicines.
Our belief is guided by our principles - Empathy and Dynamism - which provide both guidance for our current behaviour and inspiration for our future actions.
Bringing expensive medicine within reach
We leveraged the FDA Reauthorization Act and launched a generic version of Naloxone Hydrochloride injection in the US for opioid addiction. Our North America Generics team was able to motivate our wholesalers and distributors to ship the product as quickly as possible to areas hardest hit by the opioid epidemic. This accelerated access to lower–cost generic drugs for our patients.
Addressing unmet patient needs
We launched the nutritional drink Celevida® to provide the millions of diabetes and prediabetes patients in India with required nutrition. Celevida helps manage blood glucose spikes, supports weight management and contains fibre, protein, essential vitamins and minerals, and other key nutrients to boost immunity.
Helping patients manage disease better
Life can be challenging for patients living with cancer. They need 24x7 support and quality care during the most critical periods of their illness. We designed Alivius, a digital platform launched in Colombia and Brazil, which enables patients to manage their disease more easily from pre-diagnosis through treatment.
Enabling and helping our partners ensure our medicines are available where needed
One Christmas Day, we got a call from a hospital in southern France in need of a medicine for a patient with a rare disease. It had failed to source the product from its warehouse partner and other hospitals. We take our responsibility to deliver medicines on time very seriously. Our team managed to source the product and convinced a cabbie to travel 900km to deliver it immediately.
Working with partners to help them succeed
Valsartan and other Sartan APIs are used to treat blood pressure, kidney and heart diseases. At the end of 2018, Valsartan from many global manufacturers was found to contain carcinogenic nitrosamine impurities - undetected during routine testing - resulting in extensive recalls. But our process was designed to avoid the formation of these impurities. We provided necessary evidence of this to global regulators and customers, thus avoiding shortages. We continued supplying to our existing customers and also helped those looking for a trusted source.
In pursuit of our belief that Good Health Can’t Wait, we create an environment of innovation and learning to reach higher levels of excellence.
