Because we take our commitment to improving the lives of New Zealanders seriously, we support a number of organizations that offer local communities a brighter and healthier future.
We also make numerous small contributions to various organisations whose goals and objectives reflect our mission of improving the quality of New Zealander’s lives.
GSK NZ Joins forces with the Stellar in the battle against Methamphetamine
The partnership between GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare (NZ) and anti-methamphetamine charity, The Stellar Trust was formed in early 2010 to bolster the Trust’s efforts to help eradicate the use of methamphetamine, more commonly known as ‘P’, and limit the harm it causes to New Zealand society.
The objective of the partnership is to widen the outreach of the Trust’s schools education programme so that further intermediate and early high school students can understand the devastating impact that P can have.
With the $70,000 grant from GSK, the Stellar Trust is now able to provide a drug education facilitator to present to at least 50 New Zealand schools a year. Presenter Pat Buckley has the credibility and experience to engage thousands of students on the subject of making smart choices around drugs and alcohol.

Global health programmes
In communities around the world, people affected by certain diseases face stigma and discrimination, disability and a vicious cycle of ill health and poverty.
In the developing world, diseases that can be prevented, managed or cured cause significant suffering and mortality due to a lack of basic knowledge and inadequate health services.
We support activities to tackle these diseases through donations of medicines, financial and practical support.
