Grifols' approach to engaging with patient communities is based on four pillars:
ADVOCATE: Grifols serves as a reliable source of information for patient communities and policymakers. We work to better understand the needs of our patients and advocate alongside them in an effort to overcome healthcare barriers.
EDUCATE: Grifols routinely hosts on-site and virtual educational events to provide patients with a deeper understanding of the journey of plasma from donor to patient, including tours of our plasma collection and manufacturing sites.
SUPPORT: Grifols believes in supporting the missions of our patient advocacy organization partners by providing charitable donations that help maintain the independence of these organizations while promoting sustainable operations.
ENGAGE: Grifols connects patient communities with plasma donors and employees to share their patient journey. We also partner with patient communities and patient organizations through ongoing collaborations on priority projects including awareness, early diagnosis and access to care.
Engagement initiatives are governed by a global policy for patient and patient organizations, which can be read here.
