Novartis International AG

Novartis International AG is a Swiss multinational pharmaceutical company based in Basel, Switzerland. It is one of the largest pharmaceutical companies by both market capitalization and sales.

In 1996, Ciba-Geigy merged with Sandoz; the pharmaceutical and agrochemical divisions of both companies formed Novartis as an independent entity. Ciba-Geigy and Sandoz businesses were sold, or, like Ciba Specialty Chemicals, spun off as independent companies. The Sandoz brand disappeared for three years, but was revived in 2003 when Novartis consolidated its generic drugs businesses into a single subsidiary and named it Sandoz. Novartis divested its agrochemical and genetically modified crops business in 2000 with the spinout of Syngenta in partnership with AstraZeneca, which also divested its agrochemical business.

Novartis is a full member of the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA), the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations (IFPMA), and the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA).

As the world’s only fully accredited teaching hospital aboard an aircraft, the Flying Eye Hospital is quite a sight to behold. Designed to bring the best medical technology and training to the developing world, the third generation of the flying hospital was built in a donated MD-10 jet in 2016. Orbis International (a non-profit dedicated to increasing eye care standard and availability in over 90 countries) operates the Flying Eye Hospital. Alcon, Novartis AG’s eye care division, has supported Orbis for 34 years with grants, donated equipment, and volunteers.


In October 2016, the new Flying Eye Hospital took its three-week maiden voyage to the northern Chinese city of Shenyang. Once there, the hospital’s volunteers demonstrated a number of eye surgeries using advanced equipment to Chinese ophthalmologists in the plane’s operating room. In 2014, Novartis established a center in Hyderabad, India, in order to offshore several of its R&D, clinical development, medical writing and administrative functions. The center supports the drug major’s operations in the pharmaceuticals (Novartis), eye care (Alcon) and generic drugs segments (Sandoz). SEE : List Of Top Medical Device Companies In USA
