Gilead UK & Ireland Corporate Contributions
At Gilead we are inspired by the opportunity to address unmet medical needs for patients living with life-threatening diseases around the world.
Why Gilead Gives
Gilead works to improve the care of millions of patients living with life-threatening diseases around the world, including regions where access to medicine is limited or does not yet exist.
Gilead recognises that patients and communities often face challenges in accessing the best possible care, and we know that scientific discovery alone – and that Gilead alone – cannot solve these challenges. Through our corporate contributions, we work hard to foster deep and enduring relationships with patient advocates, non-profits and healthcare professionals around the world who work tirelessly in local communities to improve people’s lives day after day.
Gilead giving is centred around four pillars:
- Providing access
- Reducing disparities
- Advancing medical education
- Supporting local communities
Gilead believes medicines should be accessible to all people who need them, regardless of where they live or what resources they have. Political, social and geographical barriers prevent patients around the world from accessing the best possible care, so we work with partners and grantees to help overcome these barriers.
People should have access to the same healthcare, regardless of their background. At Gilead, we fund projects that support underserved communities that have systematically experienced greater social or economic obstacles to health.
Advancing Medical Education
Gilead works to make testing and treatment more widely available and knows education is key to effective disease prevention and long-term disease management. Gilead helps community organisations by supporting disease awareness programmes for patients and expanding knowledge and skills for healthcare professionals.
Supporting Local Communities
With employees working in over 30 countries around the world, Gilead understands how important it is for people of all backgrounds to live in vibrant local communities. Gilead funds initiatives that promote the well-being and betterment of the local neighbourhoods and cities in which we live and work.
