According to the World Health Organization (WHO), noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), such as ischemic heart disease, stroke, diabetes, certain cancers and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, were among the leading causes of death globally as of 2016.1 NCDs affect people of every age, gender and socioeconomic status in every corner of the world, and pose a heavy burden on individuals, families and communities. To overcome this global public health threat, patients worldwide need a partner they can trust – one that not only believes everyone deserves good health, but also has the portfolio, experience and expertise to make this belief a reality.

We continue to collaborate with medical associations, patient advocacy groups and academia to develop innovative, integrated solutions and programs to help strengthen both the delivery and quality of healthcare – ultimately, to reduce the burden of NCDs.
