First point of contact for healthcare advice

Daniela Bosshardt, Chairwoman of the Board of Directors, and Marc Werner, CEO

Dear Shareholders,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

2020 will go down in the history of the Galenica Group as an exceptional and particularly challenging year. The coronavirus and its consequences placed extreme demands on our various Group companies, especially in the first half of the year.

Galenica passed this test of endurance with flying colours, proving our ability to master difficult situations and special challenges thanks to our outstanding performance. In addition, 2020 clearly highlighted the critical role played by the Galenica Group and its business activities, some of which are systemically relevant to the Swiss healthcare market, whether in the nationwide supply of medicines or as the first point of contact for healthcare advice and support. To read more about the efforts being undertaken by Galenica in relation to patient safety, please see the sustainability coverage.
