Elderly Lady – Sanofi: Making Treatments more Accessible and Affordable

Prescription Medicine Pricing

As a global healthcare leader, Sanofi has a long-standing commitment to promote healthcare systems that make our treatments accessible and affordable.

Sanofi is one of many stakeholders in the healthcare system. However, we believe we have a role to play in order to maintain an ecosystem that will continue to bring new medicines and vaccines to patients. The goal of our pricing principles is to increase the understanding of how we think about pricing, while also limiting our contribution to the increase in healthcare costs and offering more transparency into the overall process.
