Supporting patient groups

Novartis is supporting patient groups. These groups play a vital role in educating and supporting patients and we remain mindful of their independent perspectives with regard to diseases and their related treatments.

In Australia, Novartis follows the principles of ‘Working Together: A Guide to relationships between Health Consumer Organisations and Pharmaceutical Companies’ ­– created together by Medicines Australia and the Consumers Health Forum. A copy of the guide can be found on the Medicines Australia website.

Novartis is committed to maintaining a transparent working relationship with patient groups. To ensure transparency, we disclose support to healthcare organisations through the Medicines Australia transparency reporting.
