Delivering better outcomes to more patients faster
Our primary contribution to healthcare is to invent and develop medicines and diagnostics that significantly improve people’s lives. This entails a commitment to working with many different partners to continuously and sustainably reduce the barriers that prevent or impede access to our products.
Malaysia generally has an efficient and widespread system of health care, operating a two-tier health care system consisting of both a government base universal healthcare system and a co-existing private healthcare system. While many people have health insurance through private or government-sponsored plans, some people are underinsured or without insurance.
