Hoosiers Work For Health is the Indiana chapter of a national initiative that unites health consumers, biopharmaceutical company employees, vendors, suppliers and other business and community partners to demonstrate how these diverse groups are vital to Indiana’s socioeconomic climate, and provide shared benefits and a better quality of life to all.

Specifically, the partnership includes local chambers of commerce and research centers, labor, businesses, patient advocacy organizations, provider groups and biopharmaceutical research companies that work together to improve America’s health care system and strengthen our economy.

The biopharmaceutical sector is the foundation of one of Indiana’s most dynamic innovation and business ecosystems. Not only does the industry invest heavily in the research and development of new treatments and cures, it also generates high quality jobs, powers economic output and exports for the U.S. economy and sustains a very large-scale supply chain.


Supporting High Quality Jobs in Indiana

The innovative biopharmaceutical sector directly supported 23,476 jobs in Indiana in 2015. These jobs are often high-skill, high-wage professions.

The industry also supported another 142,412 jobs indirectly, for a total of about 165,888 jobs across the Indiana economy. These additional jobs are with vendors and suppliers such as construction companies and I.T. companies, and jobs generated by the sector’s employees such as day care centers and restaurants.

Indiana workers whose jobs were supported by the biopharmaceutical sector paid a total of $2.2 billion in personal taxes in 2015—$1.9 million in federal taxes and $259 million in state taxes.

Indiana's Economic Impact

In 2015, the biopharmaceutical sector supported $64.5 billion in economic output for the state of Indiana—including $40.1 billion generated directly by the sector, and another $24.4 billion through its vendors and suppliers and through the economic activity of its workforce.
