Health Consumer Organisations

Working with Health Consumer Organisations

Health Consumer Organisations (HCOs) – also known as patient support groups, advocacy groups and health-focused not-for-profit organisations – represent the interest and views of consumers of healthcare. HCOs are increasingly important partners for Roche, as we share an interest in consumers understanding and managing diseases to improve their health and quality of life, as well as the quality use of medicines.

Roche is proud of its history of working with HCOs. We are committed to applying the principles of the Medicines Australia Working Together Guide and our globalWorking with Patient Groups – Good Practice Guidelines to ensure relationships between HCOs and Roche reflect common values of honesty, integrity, trust, respect, maintenance of independence, equity, transparency and mutual benefit. 

Roche collaborates with and provides support to a range of local HCOs. A list of HCOs and the support provided by the local pharmaceutical division of Roche is available here.

The lists are also available on the following external websites:
