Relationships with HCPs
These principles govern our interactions with healthcare professionals, institutions, and organizations.
A number of government agencies, including the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and the Department of Justice (DOJ) among others, regulate our US business based on various federal laws and regulations. States have also enacted similar laws and regulations. We intend to comply with these laws and regulations as well as applicable industry guidelines.
Teva has established polices designed to (1) prevent conduct which would result in violations of the laws and regulations that protect the integrity of payments for healthcare products and services and (2) detect and correct violations of those laws and regulations should they occur. All Teva employees must conduct their business activities in compliance with these policies — not just because it’s the law, but also because it is consistent with our commitment to integrity.
Three basic principles govern our interactions with healthcare professionals, institutions, and organizations, no matter where the interaction takes place:
- Our promotional messages are always on-label, truthful, and fair and balanced.
- We do not buy business.
- We do not present false information to our customers, the company, or to the government.
