At Sandoz we are united by a passion and purpose to pioneer access for patients. This powerful purpose inspires us to find new ways to help patients around the world access high-quality medicines.

To improve the lives of millions of patients, we work in partnership with stakeholders in the global healthcare community. If you are an organization that shares our Purpose to pioneer access for patients, we can provide funding to support your activities – whether that’s taking steps to improve access to medicine, access to medical information, improving medical capacity building of healthcare systems or supporting the communities where Sandoz is present.

Applying for funding

Organizations who apply will be responsible for the request, its content and submitting the application. If you receive funding, you will also be responsible for implementing the activity that receives our support, including compliance with laws and regulations.

Applications should include a clear and defined purpose for the funding, clear objectives and information on what you will deliver, including how it will benefit patients and society.

Applications will only be accepted from legitimate organizations and funding cannot be provided to individuals.

Your application should directly reflect one or more of Sandoz’ areas of interest to ensure the funding improves access to healthcare. These vary according to region or country, so please visit your local Sandoz site for more information

Funding can be provided in the form of a Grant that is an unsolicited independently requested monetary contribution for a specified purpose to support education, policy initiatives and patient advocacy activities where Sandoz will receive no benefit.
