About Roche in Aotearoa New Zealand

For more than 125 years, Roche has been committed to improving lives. Headquartered in Basel, Switzerland, Roche continues to search for better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases and make a sustainable contribution to society. We have one purpose: to do now what patients need next.

Thirty-two medicines developed by Roche are included in the World Health Organisation Model Lists of Essential Medicines, among them life-saving antibiotics, antimalarials and cancer medicines.

We have had a presence in Aotearoa New Zealand since 1973 and operate across two key businesses, Roche Pharmaceuticals and Roche Diagnostics. The ultimate aim of our almost 100 employees across the country is to enable New Zealand patients to gain access to our medicines and diagnostic tests in order to detect illnesses – such as cancer, infectious and cardiovascular disease – early, and to treat them with life-saving and life-changing medicines.

We believe that good health is incredibly precious, but also complex, because every person is unique. We are working to advance the concept of personalised healthcare – to transform people’s lives by delivering care tailored to each individual – helping to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses more effectively.

We have extraordinary people making all this happen.

New Zealanders currently have access to 27 Roche medicines, 16 of which are funded through Pharmac. Beyond this, Aotearoa New Zealand plays an important role in Roche’s global research and development network. In fact, Roche is the largest investor in clinical trials in Aotearoa New Zealand having invested more than $30 million over the last 5 years in local research and development. More than 1000 New Zealanders have been screened for access to treatments through these clinical trials. Overall, Roche medicines helped treat over 11,000 patients in 2022.

No matter which part of the business we work, our team understands that life changing discoveries will only matter if the right medicines get to the right patients.
