BUILDING A NEW KIND OF HEALTH CARE COMPANY —
The Transformation Unfolds
Schering-Plough 2005 Company Overview
Schering-Plough is a global pharmaceutical company with leading
prescription, consumer and animal health products. Today, the Company
is focused on delivering the Turnaround phase of its five-step Action
Agenda, the blueprint for a fundamental transformation that began in 2003.
Our goal is to provide a steady flow of innovative, science-based medicines
and services, and to earn the trust of the physicians, patients and
other customers we serve. By doing this well, we seek to build long-term,
sustainable growth. In everything we do, we remain committed to
business integrity, quality and compliance.
