We believe in putting something back into the community, and we define this ‘community’, both geographically and in the broader sense. Not just the neighbourhoods where our buildings are located, but also the groups of patients and families directly affected by the diseases that our products treat. In this way we can always ensure that our community activities will be closely aligned to our wider objectives as a business.
Working with Healthcare Professionals
As a member of Medicines Australia, Shire Australia has undertaken to be open and transparent when we provide a reportable payment or transfer of value to a healthcare professional. Reportable payments or transfers of value are:
- Payments for the provision of services such as giving a lecture, chairing an educational meeting, providing advice as a member of an Advisory Board or as a Consultant
- Airfares, accommodation and/or conference registration fees to attend medical education as part of those services.
Shire Australia has prepared the report for publication in accordance with the Medicines Australia Code of Conduct, Edition 18 and Australia’s Privacy legislation.
The report is designed to be read on this website. It is also provided as a downloadable CSV file.
To comply with our privacy obligations, the report may be amended from time to time. The report here contains the most up to date information. Any use or disclosure of the data by a third party is the responsibility of that third party, who must comply with the Australian Privacy Act 1988.

Working with Health Consumer Organisations
Health Consumer Organisations (HCOs) are important partners for Shire Australia. We strive to enable people with life-altering conditions to lead better lives and through partnering with HCOs, consumers may gain a greater understanding of how to manage diseases to improve their health and quality of life.
Shire Australia is proud of its growing involvement with HCOs to promote the quality use of medicine. We are committed to working within the "Medicines Australia Working Together Guide" to ensure that relationships between Shire Australia and HCOs reflect respect for independence, openness and transparency, achieving and maintaining public trust, accountability and fairness.
