Improving Quality of Life through Solutions Spanning All Stages of the Care Cycle

Ichiro Watanabe

Teijin Pharma walks alongside every one of our patients. Within our core priority fields of bone, joint, rehabilitation, neurology, respiratory, cardiovascular and metabolic, we are responding to social change and taking steps to realize healthcare for the society of the future. Our goal is a society where people can live the lifestyle of their choice, regardless of their age. Our corporate philosophy, enhancing the quality of life, is our starting point for everything. By providing total healthcare solutions, we are evolving into a company that will support future society.

As the population of the Earth ages, we must prepare for a super-aged society, defined by the WHO as a society where the percentage of people 65 and over has exceeded 21%. The nature of health is also changing, with more and more people living with long-term or multiple illnesses. In the past, patients stayed in hospitals to receive treatment, but as needs change, this model is out of date. Elderly people want to stay in their own homes and receive care from healthcare professionals in their community. In answer to this, Teijin Pharma is developing total healthcare solutions that redefine the way healthcare resources are administered and contribute to all stages of the care cycle, from disease prevention and healthy living, to treatment, to rehabilitation and nursing care.

Our products and services are designed to provide added value solutions that are optimized for global use. Through this work we hope to contribute to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal to “Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages” and achieve an extended healthy life expectancy, allowing people to live fuller lives for longer. At Teijin Pharma, we are nurturing the evolution of society and healthcare.
