About We Work For Health

In addition to working to improve health and economic viability, many biopharmaceutical companies provide philanthropic outreach in local communities through grants and programs supporting access to affordable health coverage and medicine, primary and secondary education, social services, arts, and other community needs.

Supported by PhRMA, We Work For Health seeks to educate our elected leaders, the news media and the communities they serve about the important contributions these companies and their employees make to the health and economic security of individuals, local communities, states and the nation.

These biopharmaceutical companies stand together with our business and community partners to educate elected leaders on critical public policy issues that allow our sector, and the surrounding community, to thrive, so that together we:

  • Foster an environment for increased economic development and serve as a positive economic driver;
  • Lead in the research and development of new cures, which make a difference in the quality of life for millions of Americans;
  • Can invest effectively in our communities, our patients, our employees and our business and community partners;
  • Believe everyone should have access to products and services that can improve their health and quality of life; and
  • Participate in community service efforts that demonstrate good corporate citizenship and contribute to an increased quality of life in our communities.

To build support for our mission to advance medical innovation, we currently maintain coalitions in 14 states. We invite you to take a look to see what is happening right now where you live:
