A HISTORY
OF TRANSFORMING DISEASES.

We’re on a mission to improve the standard of care worldwide. For over 30 years, we’ve developed transformative therapies for liver diseases, HIV, cardiopulmonary diseases, and oncology. With your help, we believe we can do it again for inflammatory diseases.

LIVER DISEASES

More than 300 million people worldwide are living with chronic hepatitis B or C infection, making viral hepatitis many times more common than HIV.1

Gilead has developed breakthrough medicines that can cure patients of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, regardless of the virus genotype or cirrhosis status. We’ve also developed medications that help people living with hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection manage their condition, and we continue to investigate new therapies that may allow patients to potentially control or eliminate HBV without having to endure a lifetime of treatment.

PARTNERING TO ELIMINATE VIRAL HEPATITIS

Beyond therapeutic advancement, Gilead works to expand hepatitis screening for at-risk individuals and increase access to our medicines around the world. We actively support the efforts of governments and partner with other groups who have declared their commitment to the World Health Organization (WHO) goal of eliminating viral hepatitis globally by 2030.2

HIV

Through our antiretroviral therapies, we’ve helped transform HIV infection from a fatal disease to a manageable condition for many.3

We’re also at the forefront of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), an approach that involves the use of antiretroviral medication to reduce the chances of sexually acquiring HIV-1 infection in HIV-negative individuals at risk. And we continue to research a cure for HIV that will suppress or eliminate the virus without continuous antiretroviral therapy.

ONCOLOGY

Kite, a Gilead company, is pioneering CAR T-cell therapy to help treat patients with certain hematologic cancers. This innovative approach re-engineers a patient’s white blood cells to transform their immune system into their own cancer-fighting therapy.
