Position on Access to Health

Astellas regards the situation where there still remains barriers for many people who have difficulty accessing the healthcare they need due to the lack of available treatments, poverty, healthcare system challenges and insufficient healthcare information. Astellas recognizes this problem as the Access to Health issue. To improve Access to Health, Astellas has identified four areas where we can leverage our strengths and technologies, and is working to solve issues, making full use of external partnerships. These areas are “creating innovation,” “enhancing availability,” “strengthening healthcare system” and “improving health literacy.”

We believe that undertaking initiatives for the improvement of Access to Health will contribute to the enhancement of the sustainability of society while the relationships of trust with external partners and various local governments cultivated through activities will also lead to the enhancement of the sustainability of Astellas at the same time.
