Why Gilead Gives

With each new drug discovery, Gilead seeks to improve the care of millions of patients living with life-threatening diseases around the world, including regions where access to medicine is limited or does not yet exist.

Gilead recognizes that patients and communities often face challenges in accessing the best possible care, and we know that passion for scientific discovery alone — and that Gilead alone — cannot solve these challenges. This is why, through our grantee programs, Gilead works hard to foster deep and enduring relationships with patient advocates, nonprofits and healthcare professionals around the world who work tirelessly in local communities to improve people’s lives day after day.

Gilead works with organizations across all our therapeutic areas, partnering to advance the goals of our giving mission: to improve health access, eliminate the barriers to healthcare encountered by underserved populations, advance education among healthcare professionals and support the local communities in which we operate.

Providing Access

Gilead believes medicines should be accessible to all people who need them, regardless of where they live or what resources they have. Political, social and geographical barriers prevent patients around the world from accessing the best possible care, so we work with partners and grantees to help overcome those barriers.

Reducing Disparities

People should have access to the same healthcare, regardless of their background. At Gilead, we fund projects that support underserved communities that have systematically experienced greater social or economic obstacles to health.


Advancing Medical Education

Gilead works to make testing and treatment more widely available and knows education is key to effective disease prevention and long-term disease management. Gilead helps community organizations by supporting disease awareness programs for patients and expanding knowledge and skills for healthcare professionals.

Supporting Local Communities

With more than 8,000 employees working in over 30 countries around the world, Gilead understands how important it is for people of all backgrounds to live in vibrant local communities. Gilead funds initiatives that promote the well-being and betterment of the local neighborhoods and cities in which we live and work.
