Accelerating access to healthcare technology

We believe technology can help close the world’s health gaps. By putting people first, we find new ways to advance health while reducing costs. And through partnerships, education, and advocacy, we dismantle barriers to care so more people can benefit from these life-transforming innovations.


Inclusion, Diversity & Equity

Advancing inclusion, diversity & equity

We believe in zero barriers to opportunity, so we use all the assets we have to advance equity in our communities and within our business. We drive towards a future where all our employees belong and can contribute their full life experience, amplifying our efforts to improve health in global communities.
