Company Description

From developing new therapies that treat and prevent disease to helping people in need, we're committed to improving health and well-being around the world.

We are inspired by the difference we can make in the lives of people around the world through the innovative medicines, vaccines, and consumer health and animal products we discover and produce.

Our products cover a broad range of areas, including heart and respiratory health, infectious diseases, sun care and women’s health. And we focus our research on conditions that affect millions of people around the world – diseases like Alzheimer’s, diabetes and cancer – while building strengths in new areas like biologics.

While we work to develop innovative therapies, we also work hard to make sure they’re affordable. That’s why we offer assistance and discount programs to help make our medicines accessible to those who need them.

At today’s Merck, we’re applying our global reach and strength in scientific research to do more of what we’re passionate about: working to ensure a healthier future for all – one person at a time.

Company History

We've done great things in the past. Today, we're doing great things for the future.

Merck and Schering-Plough recently merged to create a new company. Today, we are the second-largest pharmaceutical company in the world. We also are a global leader in consumer products and animal care.

Both Merck and Schering-Plough have a long and rich history of working to improve people's health and well-being. Through the years, our researchers have helped to find new ways to treat and prevent illness - from the discovery of vitamin B1, to the first measles vaccine, to cold remedies and antacids, to the first statins to treat high cholesterol. Our scientists also have helped develop many products to improve animal health, including vaccines and antibiotics.

While we are proud of our past, we are enthusiastic about the future of this new company and we are excited to help create a healthier, brighter future for people around the world.
