Patient organisations, also referred to as patient groups, are important partners for Roche. Patient groups provide patients and their families’ important support and information at a time when they are most vulnerable. By working with patient groups, Roche is able to gain a greater understanding of what it is like to live with a disease, the challenges facing patients and their families and the role that medicines play in the management of the disease.
They also provide the company with an insight on how to support healthcare professionals who in turn support patients. In accordance with industry guidelines, we publish details of our relationships with patient organisations, including a list of collaboration projects and a brief description of the nature of our support. This list is updated annually. Click here for a list of patient organisations that Roche supports
Roche is proud of its history of working with patient groups. We are committed to applying the principles of Medicines New Zealand and our global Working with Patient Groups – Good Practice Guidelines to ensure relationships between health care organisations and Roche reflect common values of honesty, integrity, trust, respect, maintenance of independence, equity, transparency and mutual benefit.
