29 June 2016 – Today, Novo Nordisk published a new issue of its sustainability magazine - TBL Quarterly - showing the value and impact of working in partnerships. The Partnership Issue explores how Novo Nordisk enters into partnerships to better understand chronic diseases like diabetes and executes solutions that would not have been possible alone.

In 2015, global leaders stressed the need to encourage and promote effective public, public-private and civil society partnerships. The latest TBL Quarterly brings real-life examples of collaborative working creating value for multiple partners.

“The opportunities to create positive change are all around us. As a pharmaceutical company, we spend and invest significant resources on improving health for millions of people living with diabetes and other serious chronic diseases,” says Charlotte Ersbøll, corporate vice president in Novo Nordisk. “But the solutions to improve things are multi-dimensional. That is why neither we, nor any other single actor or sector can succeed in changing diabetes in isolation.”

From involving consumers in early research to collaborating to ensure access to medicine, The Partnership Issue shows why working together is worth the effort.
