What we do

At Athiko, we discover new ways to improve and extend people’s lives. We pioneer novel approaches to help people around the world access high-quality medicine. To achieve this, we pursue an integrated access strategy that focuses our work on improving access to medicines, access to medical information and access to medical capacity building, which includes efforts to provide and support appropriate training for healthcare professionals.

At least 400 million people worldwide cannot access essential health services and more than 2 billion cannot afford to buy the medicines they need.

Athiko holds leading positions central nervous system (CNS), pain and orthopaedic and hormonal therapeutics. Our broad portfolio is backed by a range of state-of-the-art technologies, formulations and devices, including prolonged-release and multiple-unit tablets. We have strong scientific roots that have driven many medical innovations, offer genuine improvements over alternative market offerings. We go beyond providing standard products and add value to the healthcare system through a range of support services and value-added medicines including combination formulations. Examples include the “Athiko” professionals app.

Increasing access to medicine is the basis of our day-to-day business model, but we also run a range of targeted corporate responsibility programs to ensure access for those most in need. These programs aim to address specific health needs in underprivileged communities, promote access to medical information and help build capacity.
