Our NGO partnerships
In 2009 we pioneered a new model to improve access to medicine in collaboration with the Hong Kong organisation, St James' Settlement. We established the first-ever non-profit pharmacy, which offers a wide range of GSK medicines at discounted prices for people with financial challenges, such as the elderly, those with chronic illness and welfare recipients. Other global pharmaceutical companies have also joined in, thereby expanding the number and variety of medicines available to patients.
We have also collaborated with other non-governmental organisations, helping to establish medicines assistance programmes including the Hong Kong Cancer Fund, Hong Kong Breast Cancer Foundation, Hong Kong Anti Cancer Society and Hong Kong Arthritis & Rheumatism Foundation.
