Patient organizations

Committed to patient interests

Patient organizations carry out meaningful work to voice patients’ concerns, represent their interests in the public arena and raise awareness. By doing so, they offer those affected and the people around them valuable support.

 

As a research-oriented company, Bayer makes a key contribution to enhancing health care and quality of life by helping prevent, diagnose, alleviate and cure illnesses. At the heart of these efforts are the patients.

 

Bayer shares the vision of patient organizations to sustainably improve the quality of life for those affected and provide them with swift access to innovative treatment options and health care services.

 

Our collaboration with patient organizations is transparent and based on our stringent ethical standards, with the organizations retaining their independence and neutrality.
