Providing the Highest Quality Products for Patients

We aim for the safe and efficient production of our medicines.

  • All of our manufacturing facilities adhere to strict Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) to safeguard quality and supply of our products.

  • Our sites are approved by their respective national health authorities, with many also receiving approvals by international health organizations, including the World Health Organization (WHO) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). We ensure that products are consistently produced and controlled to the quality standards appropriate for their intended use and as required by the Market Authorization.

  • Our global product protection team constantly analyzes our supply chain to prevent counterfeit or diverted products from reaching patients.

  • Our product packaging includes overt and covert features to help patients clearly identify authentic products and help with authentication in testing labs.

We Ensure Workplace Safety

Our Environmental Health and Safety Culture program (Zero. Believe It. Achieve It.) is designed to encourage employees to identify and mitigate safety risks. And it’s already made progress. In 2015, our incident rate of 0.23 was lower than the 0.39 incidents in 2014. Our workplace safety commitment extends to fleet safety, with two policies that aim to ensure safe driving and vehicle operation both at work and at home.
