After the statements of CEO Joe Jimenez, we expected much more.
We operate in a highly regulated industry and the need for transparency in our business activities is greater than ever. Society’s expectations of global healthcare companies are changing. People want to know that companies like Novartis are acting with integrity by helping physicians make the best decisions for patients with evidence-based information about their products and services. We continue to focus on earning this trust and are committed to reinforcing our culture of integrity, while ensuring our business practices meet the highest standards, consistently across our entire organization.
