Partnerships and Community
As we develop innovative medicines for life-threatening diseases, we recognize it takes more than medicine to improve wellbeing for people around the world.
We partner with a variety of organizations to reach the communities most in need of improved access to care. Together, we work to remove societal barriers including stigma and discrimination for Black, Latinx, LGBTQ+, aging and others who are often disproportionately impacted by health inequities.
Today, our partnerships include many large-scale initiatives to combat viral diseases and cancer.
