In Vietnam, Viatris has an extensive diversified portfolio of originator and generic medicines spanning many therapeutic areas to meet nearly every health need, including cardiovascular, pain, central nervous system, men’s health, oncology, dermatology, women’s health and Covid-19 drugs. We also make continued efforts to expand our portfolio through technology transfer of Off-Patent Originators.
We have just celebrated our second anniversary in Vietnam with two offices located in Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi and a warehouse in Long An province. This shows the extension of the company’s global impact and strengthens its commitment to being a trusted partner of the Vietnamese healthcare community. Our business and operating model is deliberately designed and implemented to deliver on our strategy to build and sustain access to medicine at scale. Access to medicine begins with sustainably delivering high-quality medicines and health solutions to people, regardless of geography or circumstance.
We partner with medical associations, hospitals, and some big pharmacy chains to optimise treatment protocols, support healthcare professionals regarding prevention, diagnosis, and treatment options, and to increase patient’s access to high-quality prescription medicines in both NCD and infectious diseases.
Our relentless pursuit is to improve access and support a sustainable healthcare system in Vietnam. This is evident by our commitment to providing high-quality made medicines through a balance of global, regional and local manufacturing as well as our investment in building local expertise and capacity. We hope that our Lotus project, one of the first innovative drug production technology transfer projects in Vietnam, started in 2017, will gain further support from the government, and relevant ministries. We believe that it aligns with the government’s Decision 376; specifically, promoting technology transfer into Vietnam to contribute to self-sufficiency, increased expertise, and fostering the economy of Vietnam.
