As a global leader in developing and delivering generic medicines, Sandoz has a comprehensive offering both geographically and in portfolio terms, plus a range of value-added customer and patient services. We offer a broad portfolio covering all major therapeutic areas, resulting in substantial savings and improved access to healthcare.
In addition to being a global leader in biosimilars and generic antibiotics, dermatology and transplantation medicines, we hold leading global positions in areas ranging from generic cardiovascular, central nervous system (CNS), pain and ophthalmology to oncology, respiratory and hormonal therapeutics.
Sandoz is a pioneer and global leader in biosimilars – approved biologics with comparable quality, safety and efficacy to existing biologics that introduce much-needed competition into this critical area of modern medicine. In addition, as a global leader in generic antibiotics, we play a critical role in ensuring the sustainability of global healthcare systems. Antibiotics are the cornerstone of healthcare today. In addition to treating a wide range of infectious diseases, antibiotics are critical to guarantee patient safety during in-hospital medical procedures such as transplants.
Our broad offering translates into substantial and ongoing savings for patients and payors, which help to ensure the sustainability of healthcare systems in the face of significant budgetary pressures, while also freeing up funding for innovative medicines. Our products, which are sold in more than 160 countries, reach more than 500 million patients and our aspiration is to reach one billion. In the UK we delivered about 90 million packs of medicine in 2016.
