Teva is a big player on the world stage - that brings considerable benefits to patients in Ireland


Enabling access to high quality medicines and treatment options


At Teva we believe that everyone should have access to high quality medicine that helps manage disease, fights infection, or simply improves overall health

We develop, produce and market affordable generic medicines, as well as innovative and specialty pharmaceuticals and biologics, and over-the-counter consumer healthcare products. That’s along with supplying active pharmaceutical ingredients to nearly 1,000 customers in over 100 countries.

Our diverse family of over 40,000 employees is the beating heart of our company, working together to find innovative and creative solutions to the healthcare challenges of today and tomorrow.

As the global leader in generic medicines, nearly 200 million patients across six continents take one of our products every day. 01


Concentrating our efforts on core therapeutic areas

We focus on developing, personalising and improving treatment of disorders of the central nervous system, migraine, respiratory conditions, oncology and pain management.

We are exploring healthcare options that are fit for the future; like new technologies, innovative devices, and a fresh approach to services.

Central Nervous System

Movement disorders and neurodegeneration


Chronic and episodic migraine


Asthma and chronic lung diseases

Oncology & Pain

Pain management and cancer therapies

We play an important role in delivering value to healthcare systems and economies around the world

The scale of production and accessible price of our products help to limit rising healthcare costs and improve patient health outcomes.

We also invest hundreds of millions of euros every year to enable our scientists to develop specialty and biopharmaceutical treatments that aim to improve patients’ health and increase access to medicines.


Delivering value to Ireland’s Healthcare System

In 2013 Ireland introduced compulsory generic medicines substitution and now, several years on, we’re seeing the real economic impact of that initiative.

Back in 2013 generic usage in the Irish medicines market was 11% but that figure rose to 58% in 2018. 02

An estimated €1.6 billion in medicine savings was realised over the period 2013-2018, solely from generic substitution. 03

Teva as the largest supplier of prescription medicines to the Health Service Executive 04 and a key partner to pharmacy in Ireland, has played an integral part in helping to drive these changes.
