Novartis has a sound strategy to navigate a world with a growing, aging population and continuously evolving healthcare needs. Our strategy supports the Novartis purpose and is centered around four key areas: holding ourselves to the highest ethical standards, being part of the solution on pricing and access to medicines, helping tackle global health challenges and being a responsible citizen.
