We work closely with the Pharmaceutical Researchers and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) to achieve broader patient access to safe and effective medicines through a free market, without price controls; strong intellectual property rights; and transparent, efficient regulation and a free flow of information to patients. We are active members of other organizations that support our views on issues affecting the healthcare industry.
Our company believes that we should be an active and effective participant in the political process and should support the legislative process by contributing prudently to state and local candidates and political organizations when such contributions are permitted by federal, state and local law.
We provide a list of all U.S. contributions made by Bristol-Myers Squibb to individual state candidates, parties and other organizations eligible to accept corporate contributions and a list of all contributions made by the Bristol-Myers Squibb Employee Political Action Committee ("EPAC"), a multi-candidate Federal PAC connected to Bristol-Myers Squibb Company. Recent contributions can be seen here.
