Dr. Reddy's mission is to fulfill 2 core purposes: first, to provide patients with access to high-quality generic medicines at affordable prices; and second, to develop new treatments that satisfy unmet medical needs, which are improvements over currently existing therapies.
The company currently markets 25 products in more than 119 presentations under its label in the United States.
Dr. Reddy's North America generics group has demonstrated its desire to be the first choice for its customers:
The need to bring more people into the health care system increases every day. The pharmaceutical industry is challenged to find costeffective solutions.
