Reporting Frameworks

In preparing our disclosures relating to access to medicine performance, we refer to the Access to Medicine Index.

The Access to Medicine Index (ATMI) is a first step toward a useful framework for transparent reporting about access to medicine performance, which will help inform our stakeholders and also enable us to compare our performance with that of peers on relevant metrics. We believe that this will help us focus on continuously improving the things that matter most.

The table below summarizes where our disclosures can be found on the website in relation to the ATMI criteria.
