Mission & Purpose

Medicines360 is a nonprofit pharmaceutical organization working toward a world where all women have access to the medicines they need.

Culture & Values

  • Integrity

    We seek to consistently align our words and actions with our values to create relationships based on honesty, accountability, learning and trust among staff and external partners. We commit to ensure that at every turn our decision-making and actions reflect our organizational values and beliefs as establishing trust is vital to organizational success.

  • Compassion

    Acting with compassion is the emotional or empathic response to perceived suffering or discomfort, which results in an authentic desire to listen and to help. At Medicines360, we recognize the complexities of life and commit to being non-judgmental and open minded to meet our staff, partners, and stakeholders where they are. This is an ever-expanding practice designed to improve work-life integration and influence our office culture and build trust by creating the conditions for others to be successful in their personal and professional pursuits.

  • Equity

    Our nation’s history is beset with practices and policies that have precluded full societal participation by groups of people based on their race, gender, ethnicity, or other identity markers, resulting in serious yet solvable socio-economic disparities. Healthcare is no exception. The pursuit of equity is at the heart of our work as we believe that no one should be disadvantaged from living healthily simply because of their social position or other socially determined circumstances. As a result, we commit to advancing equity across our organizational functions and the communities in which we operate to ensure that access and opportunity are available to all. Advancing equity will come from curiosity, knowledge sharing, communication and understanding of differences and lived experiences.

  • Collaboration

    We prioritize collaboration as it improves the way that groups work together to solve problems. This leads to more innovative, efficient processes, increased success and feeling valued. As a mission-driven organization, Medicines360 exists in relationship to others; and to accomplish our objectives means communicating openly, seeing others’ points of view, and emphasizing the needs of the collective we over the individual self. Through listening to and learning from others, we embrace a spirit of humility and commit to co-creating solutions to reach our collective and individual goals.

  • Transparency

    We commit to promoting an open, inclusive, and participatory work environment; one where information is communicated clearly and timely to ensure that all staff have the shared knowledge, understanding and motivation necessary to deliver on our mission. This includes operating as a learning organization; rooted in the belief that creating and transferring knowledge contributes to internal and external trust building and organizational improvement.
