Hear from Patients

Takeda’s Access to Medicines approach is centered on patients’ needs. Our programs are focused on strengthening countries’ healthcare systems at every stage of the patient journey.

Meet some of the patients benefitting from Takeda's Patient Assistance Programs, our innovative approach to addressing affordability and a cornerstone of our Access to Medicines approach. These programs are currently running across 14 countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America, Middle East and Europe. Our Patient Assistance Programs use innovative and collaborative financing models to increase access to treatment, while maximizing medical benefits. Since their inception in 2016, Takeda Patient Assistance Programs have made it possible for around 1,300 patients to complete their course of treatment even if they could not afford to pay for it in full.
