U.S. Public Policy Inspired by Patients

UCB is committed to the discovery and development of innovative solutions that create and deliver value for patients living with chronic, severe diseases – giving hope and improving lives. At UCB, we are inspired by patients and driven by science. 

At the foundation of these policy positions is our patient value strategy, which aims to deliver: 


  • Unique outcomes that help specific patients achieve their goals; and
  • The best individual experience; while
  • Improving as many of these lives as possible. 


We are committed to the continued evolution of the healthcare system toward recognizing and rewarding value through a policy environment that advances innovation, better incorporates patients in value-based care, and promotes affordable access for patients to the right medicine at the right time. Our policies inform UCB’s strategic engagement in healthcare public policy discussions and reflect our commitment to incorporating the patient voice in every stage of drug discovery, development, and delivery. UCB stands with the patients we serve and continues to work to create sustainable, patient-centered solutions to provide recognized value to patients improving their lives now and in the future. UCB recognizes the importance and connectivity of stakeholders across the healthcare system and is committed to working with a broad range of partners to invest in and deliver value for patients.
