Patient partners
To do our best for patients, we need to work with them

As the situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to evolve around the world, hear how we’re responding to the latest developments to ensure continued access to our medicines, diagnostics and clinical trials.

The role of patient groups is continuously evolving, and they are now more equipped than ever to define healthcare in their own terms. Patients are becoming increasingly involved in their treatment and care choices based on their own unique experiences.

Partnering with patients to further understand their everyday lives is essential to evolve the way we look at diseases. It is through collaboration that we can truly personalise healthcare, taking new approaches to develop better medicines for and with the people that matter most - patients

Watch Sanja Njegic, our Global Head of Patient Partnership, discussing what partnering with patients means at Roche.

Patients are at the core of what we do. This is why we partner with them at each stage of drug development and care delivery.

Innovation comes from challenging each other for the best possible outcome; I am so excited about all we can achieve together.
