Health for all

We bring health benefits to people around the world through our open, flexible and collaborative approach to innovation and access to healthcare.

Improving global healthcare

Improving access to healthcare in impoverished and disadvantaged communities is a key focus for our business.

In recent years we have made significant advancements in our commitment to support healthcare programs in malaria, neglected tropical diseases, HIV and tuberculosis. We do this through strong partnerships with organizations such as the World Health Organization, GAVI Alliance, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as well as other pharmaceutical and healthcare companies.

Health for all in Australia

Supporting patient advocacy groups in Australia is one of the many ways we are working to improve health for all.

In 2018, we provided significant value in grants and donations to patient groups including Polio Australia, Asthma Australia and Meningitis Centre Australia.

For instance; GSK provided financial support of $20,000 to Meningitis Centre Australia for costs associated with attendance and stall operations at five Pregnancy and Baby Expos across Australia (Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Melbourne). In addition, GSK provided an in-kind donation of Menveo and Bexsero vaccines for a family of 10 to the value of $4,100 (approximate value – the market costs of vaccines differ depending on retailer). GSK provided financial support to the sum of $72,700 to the National Asthma Council Australia for: The review of the ‘My Asthma Guide’ booklet, translation and printing of 10,000 copies. The reprint of Written Asthma Action Plans. Initial phase support of ‘Rethinking Written Asthma Action Plans project.

These are independent grants to enable patient groups deliver projects that support community awareness and education on particular disease areas.
