At Gilead, we recognize that it takes more than medicine to address challenges people and communities face. This is why we work in partnership globally and in Switzerland, to drive innovation, to support patient communities and to hold up our social commitment as a company.
To advance medical science
Gilead is committed to fighting some of the most dangerous diseases that impact people globally to create a healthier world for everyone. In Switzerland, we support local innovative projects by the scientific community that advance medical science.
To give back to communities we serve and raise disease awareness
Too often, there are barriers that stand in the way of successful prevention and optimal care for patients. Medicines is only one aspect of improving public health. Therefore, the development of breakthrough treatments needs to go hand-in-hand with contributing to educating society and to sustainably evolving the healthcare system.
In Switzerland, Gilead supports organizations that work across all our therapeutic areas of focus, partnering to advance the goals of our giving mission: to improve healthcare access, eliminate barriers to healthcare encountered by underserved populations and to advance education among healthcare professionals, patients and community members.
The crucial underlying foundation of our work and the work of our partners is raising disease awareness. This remains a priority for Gilead globally and in Switzerland. To this end, we support awareness campaigns and contribute to convening patient communities to ultimately help fight stigma and advocate for better health-related outcomes for patients.
To promote social engagement
At Gilead, employees are provided with opportunities to support the inspiring work of non-profit organizations in our local communities and to connect and collaborate with co-workers outside of our daily work. In Switzerland, the Gilead Team regularly joins together to collectively demonstrate our commitment to helping people.
