About Us

Our Focus: The Patient


Patients are at the center of all our work at Sandoz. Each day, we strive to find new, innovative ways of delivering affordable, high-quality healthcare solutions to patients who need them. We already provide a broad portfolio of standard generic medicines and are leading the way in the development and production of differentiated generics that make a real difference in patient healthcare. These generics contain the same active substances as reference medicines and are as effective as the brand name versions, all at an affordable price.
