Santen’s actions regarding COVID-19

Tue 17 March 2020

As a healthcare company that is well represented across the globe, Santen’s mission is to contribute to the well-being of patients, their loved ones and consequently to society. 

In the face of COVID-19, we are taking every possible measure to maintain the supply of our medicines to patients and healthcare professionals. In addition, we take our role in limiting the risk to our people and those around us very seriously. We are continuously monitoring possible risks in each country and taking all appropriate actions. 

Our manufacturing network is fully operational and as the global situation evolves, we will continue to take the steps necessary to safeguard the reliable supply of our medicines. Mindful that our medicines are used to treat long term conditions that impact on sight and quality of life, we will also be working to help patients receive their medicines despite potential movement restrictions. 

To reduce the risk of infection, we have minimised the staff working from our offices and withdrawn field-based teams as local circumstances dictate. No international business travel is permitted, and domestic travel and meetings have been minimised. 

We will continue to protect and support the community we serve throughout this crisis.
