Haleon’s purpose is to deliver better everyday health with humanity. We know there’s more we can do to help improve health inclusivity for all.

Health exclusion can happen for many reasons, ranging from discrimination due to a person’s race, ethnicity, gender, age, disability, and sexuality to factors such as not knowing how to manage a health condition. We want to change this by understanding what holds people back from better everyday health, so we can include them in opportunities to improve their health and that of their loved ones.

That’s why we’ve set ourselves the goal of empowering millions of people a year to be more included in opportunities for better everyday health, empowering 50 million people a year by 2025.

We are working to tackle three barriers that we know hold people back from better everyday health, and where we, as Haleon, are well-placed to help: 

  • Health literacy

Growing the knowledge, skills and support that will inform and empower healthy living and healthy behaviours. 

  • Healthcare accessibility

Improving the availability of and access to healthcare that meets the needs of people who are typically held back.

  • Bias and prejudice

Tackling bias and prejudice in health systems and challenging outdated social norms by promoting more inclusive policies and practices.

We're aiming to achieve our health inclusivity goal and help address these three barriers by driving change through our purposeful brands, empowering self-care and investing in research and action.
