Access to Medicine Index

Access to Medicine Index

In preparing our disclosures relating to access to health, for 2016–2017 we referred to the Access to Medicine Index.

The Access to Medicine Index is a framework that encourages reporting about efforts to improve access to medicine and which can help inform our stakeholders and also enable us to compare our performance with that of peers on relevant metrics.

We ranked number 5 on the 2016 Access to Medicine Index, up from number 7 in the last Index, published in 2014. The Index, published every two years, assesses the efforts of research-based pharmaceutical companies to improve access in developing countries.

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