AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals
About Us


Science can change our vision of the world and how we deal with the diseases that affect us. The future of treatment for many of today’s diseases lies in uncovering disease mechanisms that are newly emerging or are still to be discovered. Science challenges us to push the limits of what is possible. This is why we put science at the centre of everything we do.

At AstraZeneca every one of our employees makes a difference to patient lives every day. We are inspired by the things that seem impossible and stimulate continued creativity throughout our organisation, maintaining a culture in which our people feel valued for their ideas and contributions. Ideas that can make a difference in all aspects of our business and to healthcare in Africa.

Our Johannesburg office serves as a hub of communication between our office-based staff and more than half the company’s employees that are directly involved in the promotion of our medicines to healthcare professionals throughout the country. South Africa forms part of our larger African Cluster region. Collaboration across markets gives us the ability to identify synergies and share best practices to deliver best-in-class solutions that are locally relevant.

In African Cluster we consider our responsibility to our patients and our community as an integral part of what we do. When we see an opportunity for change we seize it and make it happen, because an opportunity no matter how small can be the start of something big. Our commitment to improve health outcomes for patients in Africa extends far beyond our medicines. We offer programmes that advance patient health and access along the care continuum and provide reliable support networks.

AstraZeneca has been working to deliver the best value to patients in Africa for over 28 years. Our vision is to transform the lives of patients, ensuring all Africans have access to our innovative medicines.
