Patient Groups – or patient advocacy groups and patient organizations – are important partners for Shire. Our aim is to forge trusting, mutually-beneficial relationships with patient groups. To build and maintain this trust, we are committed to understanding and addressing unmet needs in the patient community. We support patient organizations in our therapeutic areas through sponsorships, grants and donations.
In keeping with our commitment to ensure responsible business practices, Shire believes transparency in our funding decisions is vital to building and maintaining trust with our stakeholders.
