Merck Human Health division

Human Health

We build the bridges that connect our science with doctors and patients throughout the world

Our Human Health Division maintains a “patient first, profits later” ideology. The organization is comprised of sales, marketing, market access, digital analytics, and commercial professionals who are passionate about their role in bringing our medicines to our customers worldwide.

A philosophy of patient first

George W. Merck gave us a core principle that we stand by over a century after our organization was founded: "We try never to forget that medicine is for the people, it is not for the profits. The profits follow, and if we have remembered that, they have never failed to appear."
