At Gilead Sciences, our vision is to create a healthier world for all people. Gilead Global Patient Solutions (GPS) combines partnership and innovation to pursue global health equity.
Since 1987, Gilead has commercialized more than 25 innovative medicines, helping to transform treatment for people living with disease such as HIV, viral hepatitis, neglected tropical diseases and cryptococcal meningitis around the world. As our science expands into new therapeutic areas, including oncology and inflammation, we are exploring new strategies to strengthen health systems and expand access to care.
GPS at a Glance
Global Patient Solutions is the Gilead business unit that partners with governments and communities to reduce the disproportionate disease burden in low- and middle-countries.

We work as partners alongside the communities we serve because we know that we need to listen and learn, and walk this journey together.
