Our strategy

GSK has changed. In July 2022, we demerged our world-leading consumer healthcare business, Haleon. We are now a fully focused biopharma company.

We prioritise innovation in vaccines and specialty medicines, maximizing the increasing opportunities to prevent and treat disease. At the heart of this is our R&D focus on the science of the immune system, human genetics and advanced technologies, and our world-leading capabilities in vaccines and medicines development. We will focus on four therapeutic areas: infectious diseases, HIV, oncology, and immunology.
