A track record of responding to Global Public Health Emergencies

Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, Hetero has been proactive in responding to the various challenges surrounding it. It has been the first company to launch the licensed version of generic Remdesivir under the brand name ‘Covifor’ in India for treating severely infected patients and followed it up with Favipiravir (Favivir) to provide succor to those affected by mild and moderate symptoms. As of today, the company is among the largest manufacturers of Remdesivir globally.
