About Sanofi

Sanofi Worldwide

We put patients at the heart of our activities with the aim of improving their lives, today and tomorrow.

As a global diversified healthcare company, Sanofi has a wide range of prevention and treatment solutions to fit the individual needs of patients. Listening to our patients must inform all our decisions and actions: we must understand patient needs and what healthcare providers and payers require, then define what we can bring to them.

Not only are we looking for more effective and safer solutions to improve human health, but also for more affordable and cost-effective therapies to which all patients will have access. We have developed an innovative approach to provide sustainable access to medicines to people in emerging countries.

One way of translating our commitment into reality is by forging partnerships with patient associations. This helps us better understand the needs and expectations of patients through dialogue and exchange of know-how. We partner with patient associations to help address the broader issues along the patient journey, such as prevention, awareness and living and coping better with medical conditions.

Sanofi recognises the crucial importance of patient-centered healthcare and ensuring that patient needs are placed at the centre of healthcare policy discussions, irrespective of therapeutic area or specific geography.

We also recognise our corporate social responsibilities through a range of philanthropic and community initiatives. See Our Social Responsibility.

Our role in disease prevention is the focus of Sanofi Pasteur, the fully integrated vaccines division of Sanofi. Sanofi Pasteur, is a world leader in the vaccines industry, offering the broadest range of vaccines in five critical areas: influenza, peadiatric combinations and poliomyelitis vaccines, adult and adolescent booster vaccines and meningitis as well as a range of travel vaccines and measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccines.

Combining the pharmacy ‘back of store’ presence of Sanofi’s prescription medicines with the ‘front of store’ presence of Sanofi Consumer Healthcare products confirms the power of the Sanofi ‘Total Store Concept’.
