Novartis Foundation


The Novartis Foundation is a philanthropic organization aiming to have a sustainable impact on the health of low-and middle-income communities. We tackle global health challenges through a mix of programmatic work, health outcomes research, and their translation into policy.

We are convening local and global partners and work with them hand-in-hand to catalyze sustainable healthcare models to improve access and health outcomes. Around the world we are working to address hypertension, and related cardiovascular complications, and to accelerate efforts to eliminate leprosy by focusing on interventions that aim to interrupt transmission. We use Digital technology as an enabler to innovate the way healthcare services are delivered, while ensuring people remain at the center of care. Our work is grounded in evidence and evaluation. We continually evaluate and adapt our programs to achieve the greatest impact.
In 2017, the Foundation’s programs reached 7 million people.
