Patient programs and support networks empower the patient voice
Edwards Lifesciences supports patient organisations around the world because they are uniquely positioned to provide much-needed services to patients. Whether the organisation provides peer-to-peer training and support, disease awareness and public education, insights into the patient perspective, advocacy on policy initiatives, opportunities for our employees to give back to the community, or efforts to educate and empower patients to advocate on their own behalf, we are proud to support their efforts to advance people's health and quality of life.
We ensure that collaboration between our company and patient organisations is always transparent and complies with local laws and regulations. Through transparency and our internal policies, we support the independence of these organisations and provide an ethical setting for our efforts to improve people’s lives.
