Championing Women's Health

May 5, 2017

In many countries, women cannot easily access healthcare, which greatly compromises their social and economic status. Mylan believes that women should be able to exercise control over all aspects of their lives, so we have made championing their health a priority.

Progress in this area will help achieve several of the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, such as ending poverty in all its forms, reducing inequality within and among countries, and ensuring health and well-being for all.

Mylan offers treatments for a variety of conditions affecting women throughout their lives. Examples of conditions are cardiovascular disorders, cancer, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s and autoimmune diseases. We also are a major provider of hormone replacement therapies, menstrual disorder treatments, and intimate-care and infection-control products. Further, Mylan is one of the world’s largest suppliers of female contraceptives.

  • Mylan’s women’s health business spans more than 60 emerging-market countries, touching the lives of approximately 15 million women.
  • In the U.S., Mylan is the nation’s largest supplier of cardiovascular medicines and of cancer medicines, by volume[1]
  • In Europe, Mylan is the largest supplier of women’s health products and menopausal therapy[2]
