Our stakeholders include patients and caregivers, associates, healthcare providers, governmental and non-governmental organizations, shareholders, and other financial market participants, local communities, and partners from the pharmaceutical and other industries. We engage with these diverse groups to understand their needs and expectations, and to improve access to healthcare.
We engage with our stakeholders in a variety of ways including
Focus groups and collaborations with patient advocacy groups to better understand patient needs
Participation in scientific congresses to interact with the scientific community
Public policy work to meet with authorities and regulators
Global associate surveys to gauge associates’ perspectives on the company
Roundtables to exchange experiences and expectations with our suppliers
We continuously strive to improve how we engage with our stakeholders, as it helps us to learn more about our business and stakeholder expectations, correct misperceptions, make strategic adjustments in corporate practice, as well as to raise trust among our stakeholders and reach common understanding.
