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 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.
