Grifols' commitment to patients
Since we began in 1940, we have been committed to improving the health and well-being of people around the world. Our commitment to patients inspires us to maintain very high standards of quality and safety for the medications we produce.
Grifols is a strong supporter of the patient communities we serve. Patients are at the heart of our work each and every day.
Focused on patients
Our focus on patient communities is based on four main pillars:
EDUCATE: Grifols provides patients with a first-hand look at the safety and quality of the plasma donation process and enables them to meet donors and employees. Grifols also hosts biannual Patient Community Open Houses, consisting of educational programs for patients and community leaders.
ADVOCATE: We are a trusted and credible source of information for policy makers and patients. We work to inform community members on current health policy issues of interest to rare diseases and bleeding disorders.
ENGAGE: We engage with patient communities by organizing ongoing events, patient and medical conferences, and local support group meetings, including gatherings with donors and employees at local donation centers.
SUPPORT: We have an efficient review and approval process that enables us to make donations to medical education and charitable causes that further the mission of patient organizations.
