Making a meaningful difference for people and communities
Advancing patient and community health beyond the medicine
At AstraZeneca we are deeply committed to making a meaningful difference in the lives of people and communities. We follow the science to deliver life-changing medicines for millions of patients worldwide, and our commitment extends far beyond our medicines.
We invest in organizations, programs and policies that improve patient health and access to care, drive health and science innovation and support the communities where we live and work. We do this through a combination of partnership development, philanthropy, advocacy, thought leadership and volunteerism.
New medicines are our lifeblood at AstraZeneca—both small molecule and biological products that address the unanswered needs challenging patients, families, and caregivers. Our clinical trials are guided by global standards and by our concern for the lives of the patients who put their trust in us. We are committed to maintaining ethical sales and marketing practices, and ensuring the integrity of our medicines throughout the manufacturing and supply process.
We believe that providing information to the public about our company, our medicines and how we do business serves the best interests of patients, investors and other stakeholders. We view the way we conduct our business as a great responsibility for our company and all of our employees, and it is critically important to us that the public trusts our ability to carry out this responsibility ethically and in the best interest of patient health.
