You might say we’re a new type of start-up. On the one hand, we’re a passionate, global community of thousands dedicated to redefining the future of women’s health. We are a company formed through a spinoff from Merck (known as MSD outside of the U.S. and Canada) with a mission to deliver impactful medicines and solutions for a healthier every day. And we bring these important therapies around the world, with an international footprint that serves people in more than 140 markets. Our areas of focus include reproductive health, heart disease, dermatology, allergies and asthma.
On the other, we are actually a new company, able to look at a global healthcare need with fresh eyes and an innovative approach. We have intentionally developed our culture, mission and values to engender a diverse, equitable work community collaborating in an open and fluid environment.
We believe the diversity of our business provides a sustainable engine of growth so we can continue to invest in and advance new medicines and treatments for women that are so urgently needed.
We are here for her health.
