Shire Global

There’s a simple purpose that sits at the heart of our business: to enable people with life-altering conditions to lead better lives. We want to be the company that imagines and leads the future of healthcare for people with life-altering conditions, creating value for society

Imagining and leading the future

Our success so far stems from our single-minded determination to focus on our patients and our willingness to adapt to changing environments. We're motivated to put ourselves in patient’s shoes and imagine new ways to meet challenges and achieve a better future for the people we help, and society at large.

Our purpose, mission and strategy

Since Shire’s formation just over 25 years ago, we remain true to the purpose that inspired us from our early days to help people with life-altering conditions lead better lives.

Our caring approach has made us a leader in many of our therapeutic areas, but we want to achieve more. Looking forward, we need to develop even more groundbreaking, new ways to transform more patients’ lives, adding value to society, while delivering value to our stakeholders. This purpose keeps patients and their needs at the centre of everything we do.
