The primary mission of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, is to bring pharmaceutical products to the market which improve human health. We recognize the important role that patient organizations play in providing support and disseminating information to both patients and their care-givers.
Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, and its Healthcare business provide financial and in-kind donations, grants and sponsorships to support various patient organizations in continuing their work.By contributing to patient organizations, our company does not seek to influence or control the information that such organizations communicate to their members and other audiences.
We are actively committed to bringing therapeutic innovations to patients, and as our values form an integral part of our activities, Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, and its Healthcare business publish below the support provided to patient organizations.
The published report provides transparency on the relationship between our affiliates and contracted third parties (e.g. agencies) and patient organizations, which operate in countries of the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA) as well as the financial and nonfinancial support provided.
We will update this list on a yearly basis by April 1st, for all contributions to patient organizations made in the preceding year. All entries are created as part of a good faith effort. Inaccuracies in older entries will be updated if new information is available.
