Astellas is a pharmaceutical company committed to making a meaningful difference to people’s everyday lives. Our role is to answer the unmet needs of patients across the world and the many healthcare professionals and caregivers around them.
To deliver against Astellas’ global mission, our Nordic Astellas team works ethically and transparently across the region with external audiences, such as media, professional organisations, politicians, industry groups and the public.
Our social media channels help us connect with these and other stakeholders across the Nordic countries so that they can discover more information on aspects of our work relevant to them, and keep up to date on the latest company news.
While content posted by us on our social media represents our views, please be aware that the views expressed by others on our channels or on shared post from our channels are not the views of Astellas or its employees.
