The first generic medicine we ever made? Penicillin G in 1966. Since then, Mylan has applied one global quality standard across our facilities, and across our product line, regardless of market.

When your mission is to provide 7 billion people access to high quality medicine, how do you get the medicine to them?
At Mylan, we’ve established a broad network of local and global access channels through physicians, institutions, governments, retailers and wholesalers. These are relationships we’ve built and nurtured over decades.
Nearly 80% of U.S. prescriptions are filled with a generic medicine.
One out of every 11 U.S.prescriptions dispensed, brand name or generic, is filled with a Mylan product.
Generic medicines saved the American health care system $1 trillion between 2002 and 2011.
Our Generics History
1970s: By decade’s end, we produced five of the 10 most prescribed generic medicines.
1981: Mylan helps found the Generic Pharmaceutical Industry Association. The group lobbies for the Hatch-Waxman Act—a response to the high price of brand name drugs.
1986: Through congressional testimony, we help expose fraudulent practices between the Food and Drug Administration and several generics companies.
2007: We acquire Merck KGaA’s generics business, which sells products in more than 90 countries.
2012: We help drive the Generic Drug User Fee Amendments and the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act. Both help ensure one global quality standard for all medicines entering the United States.
