With each new drug discovery, Gilead seeks to improve the care of millions of people living with life-threatening diseases around the world, including regions where access to medicine is limited or does not yet exist.
Gilead recognizes that people and communities often face challenges in accessing the best possible care and we know that passion for scientific discovery alone — and that Gilead alone — cannot solve these challenges. This is why, through our grants programs, Gilead supports patient advocacy organizations, healthcare professionals and nonprofit groups around the world that work tirelessly in local communities to improve people’s lives day after day.
Gilead supports organizations across our therapeutic areas of focus, partnering to advance the goals of our giving mission: to improve healthcare access, eliminate the barriers to healthcare encountered by underserved populations and advance education among healthcare professionals, patients and community members.
Gilead believes medicines should be accessible to all people who need them, regardless of where they live or what resources they have. Political, social and geographical barriers prevent people around the world from accessing the best possible care, so we work with partners and grantees to help overcome those barriers.
Gilead funds projects that support underserved communities that have systematically experienced disproportionate social or economic obstacles to health.
Gilead recognizes that education is key to effective disease prevention and long-term disease management. Gilead helps community organizations by supporting disease awareness programs for patients and expanding knowledge and skills for healthcare professionals.
