Advancing Medicine, Enhancing Health


Gilead has taking on the world’s biggest health challenges for more than 35 years. We continue to set and achieve ambitious goals to create a healthier world for all people.

Innovative Medical Breakthroughs: Gilead’s Journey in Transforming Healthcare

Since its inception in 1987, Gilead has discovered, developed and delivered innovative medicines in areas of great unmet medical need. Our ability to translate science into once-impossible advances has led to the commercialization of more than 29 life-changing therapies. 

We believe – and have demonstrated – that today’s bold ambitions lead to tomorrow’s breakthroughs. By following a deliberate strategy, we’ve taken meaningful strides in our transformative journey to become a business based on diverse and sustainable growth. 

Our ambitions have led us to a cure for the hepatitis C virus and helped to transform the treatment and prevention of HIV with the goal of ending the HIV epidemic for everyone, everywhere. Now, we’re working toward changing the standard of care for certain cancers and remain focused on developing therapies for various inflammatory diseases.

Empowering Health: Gilead’s Focus on People and Community Well-being

To succeed in creating a healthier world for everyone, we prioritize not only the patients and communities we serve, but the people who do the work. 

Our success as a company is indeed made possible by our unique culture and more than 18,000 employees. We are committed to creating an environment where all our employees can be their whole selves, enabling them to do their best work. By encouraging employees to share their bold ideas, we foster an inclusive culture where innovation and people can thrive.

Gilead has long been committed to addressing the social determinants of health and overcoming barriers to care. Through our many global and local partnerships, we strive to advance health equity, diversity in clinical trials and access to medicines to reduce disparities, advance education among healthcare professionals and support the local communities in which we operate. 


Sustainable Health Practices: Gilead’s Strategy for a Healthier Planet

The health of our planet and its people are inextricably linked. Climate change and poor air quality resulting from burning fossil fuels can adversely impact human health. Given Gilead’s vision to make the world a healthier place for all people, we feel an obligation to be part of the solution. Our strategy is to set ambitious environmental targets and put programs in place to address the four focus areas that guide our comprehensive approach to sustainability: Carbon, Water, Waste and Product. 

We have set bold science-based greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets for our own operations and for our value chain. And we’re engaging with suppliers to achieve them. We’re taking measures to reduce our energy and water use, drive waste and inefficiencies from our manufacturing processes and operations, and to embrace green buildings. 

Gilead’s efforts also reach beyond the impacts associated with our company. We are collaborating with universities, industry associations, local communities and others to advance sustainability. 

Our aim is to embed sustainability into our culture so that it is integral to everything we do. If we do this well, we will be successful in our mission to deliver innovative medicines while doing what is right for people and the planet.
