About the organisation
Basic details : We, at Sanofi, are there beside people in need, as a health journey partner. Sanofi is a French multinational pharmaceutical company headquartered in Paris, France, as of 2013 the world's fifth-largest by prescription sales. The company was formed as Sanofi-Aventis in 2004 by the merger of Aventis and Sanofi-Synthélabo, which were each the product of several previous mergers. It changed its name to Sanofi in May 2011. The company is a component of the Euro Stoxx 50 stock market index.
Sanofi engages in the research and development, manufacturing and marketing of pharmaceutical drugs principally in the prescription market, but the firm also develops over-the-counter medication. The company covers seven major therapeutic areas: cardiovascular, central nervous system, diabetes, internal medicine, oncology, thrombosis and vaccines (it is the world's largest producer of the latter through its subsidiary Sanofi Pasteur).
Mission : At Sanofi we work passionately, every day, to understand and solve the health care needs of people around the world. We believe that when people take control of their health care - by gaining knowledge, making informed decisions, taking part in research, and even having a say in the design of products and services - they can improve their health and their lives. We also believe that partnering with patients is key to our success. That is why Sanofi was the first of 10 top pharmaceutical companies to appoint a chief patient officer and later establish a Patient Centered Solutions function, which is committed to leveraging patient insights to improve their outcomes while ensuring that patient priorities are reflected in all we do
Vision : We envision a world where people take the lead in improving their healthcare outcomes and their lives
