At Novartis our purpose is to reimagine medicine. Our mission is to explore and discover new and innovative ways to improve and extend people’s lives.

We use science-based innovation to address some of society’s most challenging healthcare issues. Our aim is to discover and develop breakthrough treatments and find new ways to deliver them to as many people as possible. Through our vision and mission, we also aim to provide a shareholder return that rewards those who invest their money, time, and ideas in our organization.

With Headquarters in Basel, Switzerland, we are a leading global medicines company, based in 140 countries worldwide. Outside of discovering and developing breakthrough treatments, we are constantly exploring new ways to deliver them to as many people as possible.

Through innovative science and digital technologies, we create transformative treatments in areas of greatest medical need. As an innovative medicines company, we consistently rank among the world’s top companies who continue to invest in research and development. Externally we aim to be a leading Patient Centric organization, with our medicines reaching nearly 800 million patients globally, and we continue to expand our access and reach to more people globally and locally.

Novartis employs around 108,000 people globally, across the 140 countries that we have a presence in, and are a very people focused organization.
