Our Social Approach
Our approach to social impact starts with our medicines and our goal to expand access to quality health care. We work across global health systems to extend our reach by being part of the solution for complex challenges that disproportionately affect people living in settings with limited resources. We strive to provide an inclusive, high-performance workplace where our team members can bring their authentic selves to work every day, and grow and thrive. And in our communities, we invest our time, expertise and resources to drive social impact, with a focus on health. We also engage in targeted social issues that affect our business, our communities and employees, with an emphasis on racial justice and education.
