We are a global industry leader with a mission: we want to help people to do more, feel better, live longer. On the 12th of October 2014 we completed a 3-part transaction with the contractor which reshapes our business. We acquired contractor’s business and combined our Consumer businesses to create a new company.

By substantially strengthening it, we can deliver far-reaching benefits to consumers, and further value to shareholders. In addition, we acquired our marketed portfolio. More information will be added to this website over the coming weeks.

Our company is focused on different areas. We are guided by the equity principle. But equity approach is not only right in principle. It is right in practice.

This means, in practice, doing a better job of mapping the areas of greatest need – looking beyond averages and disaggregating the data so as better to target the hardest to reach. It means developing better monitoring and evaluation of results, to see what is working and where further resources should be focused.

The Research Centre is our main research arm. It was founded in 1998 to improve international understanding. It strengthens company’s research capacity and amplifies its voice as an advocate for customers’ rights worldwide, identifying and examining current and future areas of our work and informing our advocacy and policy.
