At Takeda Oncology, we put patients first and strive to build lasting relationships with people with cancer and their caregivers, to bring better health and a brighter future to patients locally and globally.

Our Patient Advocacy team accomplishes this by: helping people with cancer access care, delivering education about different types of cancer, serving as the voice of the patient with internal stakeholders, engaging the patient community across many channels and affecting policy on behalf of people with cancer.

We are committed to building sustainable relationships with the patient community which are based on transparency and mutual respect. Building trust with society is a core principle of Takeda and it is part of our philosophy. We respect the autonomy and mission of the patient community and will not seek to influence or bias their objectives.

We lead a series of signature advocacy programs and activities, including Patient Ambassadors, local patient outreach programs, educational programs delivered by patient groups, charitable support for cancer advocacy organizations and patient-centered disease awareness campaigns during Blood Cancer Awareness Month (September), Multiple Myeloma Awareness Month (March) and Lung Cancer Awareness Month (November).

We support and lead the understanding of the challenges and experiences in patients’ daily lives and work with our internal teams to find ways to address their unmet needs and expectations.

Understanding the experiences and challenges that patients face helps us bring better medicines to market. We integrate patients’ viewpoints into the drug development process so that we can bring forward treatments that truly address their needs.

As we bring potential new medicines into clinical trials, we engage patients to provide input on which outcome measures would be most meaningful and how the study protocol would impact their day-to-day lives. This process not only speeds the delivery of novel treatments, but also ensures that those treatments are the right ones—the most needed ones—for patients.
