Our impact

We’re putting better health within reach, every day. By creating high-quality products and making them accessible to those who need them, we’re helping to shape a healthier world that enriches all our communities.

Making a positive impact for all stakeholders.

We engage healthcare professionals to better understand their needs, helping them treat the patients they serve.

We provide healthcare professionals and patients across our markets with over 760 high-quality and affordable medicines, ensuring they are readily accessible. We achieve this by aligning our commercial activities, operations, and R&D efforts to the evolving needs of patients and healthcare professionals.

Our employees have always been at the heart of everything we do.

The passion and commitment of our people to our values is key to delivering our purpose and supports our growth plans. One of our key strategic priorities is to build a culture that inspires and enables our people, one in which they are empowered to drive innovation and are committed to caring for customers, patients and communities around the world.

Our customers are our business partners and we are

We work closely with Group Purchasing Organisations (GPOs), hospitals, retailers, wholesalers and others to build strong relationships and enhance service levels. Our commercial teams work closely with our different customers to understand their needs, reduce drug shortages and ensure we invest in the products, manufacturing capacity and capabilities needed to meet their requirements.

Success stories

Supporting education with UNHCR

Over the past four years, Hikma has partnered with the UNHCR's DAFI (Albert Einstein German Academic Refugee Initiative) Scholarship Programme to sponsor scholarships and offer scholars opportunities such as visiting our manufacturing sites.

Fatma, a former Yemeni DAFI student who studied medicine in Egypt, one of the focus countries of Hikma’s support, explains

"DAFI made me believe in myself and my abilities as a middle eastern woman, as the first woman in my family line to get the opportunity of higher education. It’s undeniable that DAFI was an integral part of my journey, facilitating the hardships and paving the way to reach my goal of becoming an efficient, experienced doctor, and more importantly, a person who gives back to her community."
