Purpose, strategy and culture

Our purpose guides our every move, now and into the future. At the heart of it lies a genuine desire to bring better health within people’s reach.

Better health. Within reach. Every day.

Our purpose is to put better health within reach, every day
This is our reason for existing, and the thing that drives everything we do. We aim to overcome the obstacles of geography, supply and affordability and make a real difference to the lives of people, whoever they are and wherever they may be. We can only do that if we have the right culture – and we all have a role to play in building it.

Our strategy enables us to deliver on our purpose

We aim to deliver consistent and profitable growth by putting better health within reach every day, creating high-quality medicines and making them accessible for patients around the world. Our three strategic pillars are: to strive for excellence; to diversify and differentiate our pipeline; and to empower people and act responsibly.

Hikma has a culture of progress and belonging
This is about being one Hikma, supporting each other, driving onwards, growing our business and pursuing our collective promise – to put better health within reach, every day. At the heart of this are our three values: innovation, caring and collaboration. We’re innovative because we progress by embracing new perspectives and inspiring each other. We're caring, taking the time to build relationships that are grounded in understanding, fairness and respect. And we’re collaborative, never losing sight of the shared goal that unites us and drives us forward.

I am wholeheartedly committed to our purpose. My vision is to reinforce a culture where everyone feels a sense of belonging, where each person can contribute meaningfully and thrive in their careers.
