Read Competing by Saving Lives Report and Executive Summary

"Competing by Saving Lives" examines how pharmaceutical and medical device companies can create shared value in global health by addressing unmet health needs in low and middle-income countries. The report notes numerous examples of companies that are creating shared value in global health, and profiles ten in detail: GE, Abbott, Stryker, AstraZeneca, Medtronic, Novartis, Novo Nordisk, GlaxoSmithKline, Eli Lilly and Company, and Becton Dickinson and Company.

The unmet health needs of billions of underserved patients represent an untapped potential for innovation and growth. Research demonstrates that companies have already begun to reap business value and are securing competitive advantages in new markets by transforming their products, pricing, manufacturing, distribution, and marketing to profitably meet these needs.

FSG would like to thank the following sponsors for their support and contributions to FSG's work on Shared Value in Global Health: Abbott, Becton Dickinson and Company, Eli Lilly and Company, and Medtronic.
