Our goal is to lead the way to a healthier future. But we also care about how we get there together.

Ethics and transparency are cornerstones of our reputation. The foundation of our strategy is our unwavering commitment to our values of ethics and integrity. We work hard to make sure we live up to our own high standards every day.

Elements of an Effective Compliance Program

As part of our long-standing commitment to ethics and good corporate citizenship, we adopt policies and procedures to facilitate compliance with the laws and regulations that govern the way we market and sell our medicines, vaccines and other products.

A Commitment to Transparency

We aspire to be open and transparent about how we operate in order to earn and retain the trust and confidence of our stakeholders. We have a long history of making our medicines and vaccines accessible and affordable through responsible pricing practices and industry-leading patient access programs. As part of our ongoing commitment to transparency about our business operations, and to help people better understand our pricing practices in the United States, in 2017 we began disclosing information about price increases for our medicines and vaccines.
