35 years of commitment in Hungary

Better outcomes for more patients, faster

We have been working for 35 years to get Roche's most innovative medicines to the Hungarian patients. Since then, we have contributed to the treatment of the patients with 74 therapies.
Our mission is to close the gap between the Hungarian and European patients’ outcomes by building partnerships with Hungarian patients and the healthcare system’s stakeholders, utilizing Roche’s portfolio and beyond.

Personalized Healthcare

Every patient is unique

We're all unique. We differ from our fellow human beings in many ways, including our illnesses. Today, however, we treat diseases, symptoms, or reasons rather than individual patient cases. While we know human biology and our diseases better than ever before, the usual routine and patterns of healthcare are still predominant as of 2020. Personalised healthcare (medicine) is aimed at leaving behind this approach.
