Since our founding, we’ve led with purpose to make a lasting impact for patients, communities and society.

Making a real difference for communities, patients and society

This commitment has touched hundreds of thousands of lives and exemplifies the responsibility and privilege of everyone at AbbVie to support our communities, better our society and serve patients.
