Our strategy

We recognise that radical changes are taking place in the eco-system of care and that we need to evolve accordingly to deliver on our vision. The key element of our evolution is to focus on the delivery of increased patient value.

There is no such thing as an “average patient”. We want to use all the tools, channels and scientific advances at our disposal to develop a better understanding of the various expressions of a disease and embed the real needs of specific patient populations in our science and innovation process.

That is why we support patient groups who provide valuable services to patient communities and understand what matters to people living with severe diseases.

We believe in partnership. Our scientists collaborate with leading researchers from academia and industry to advance science and deliver the solutions patients need. Our open approach to innovation equips us to meet today’s biggest healthcare challenges.
