Abbott in Australia and New Zealand



Since 1935 in Australia, and 1941 in New Zealand, we have been dedicated to helping people live healthier lives through a diverse range of science-based nutritional products, diagnostic tools and vascular devices. We're working to find solutions to the serious health issues confronting people today such as cardiovascular disease, and diabetes with the FreeStyle Libre glucose monitoring system.

We are unique in Australia & New Zealand, because we offer support across the full spectrum of chronic disease management – prevention, diagnosis, monitoring and intervention – allowing people to live "Life to the Fullest".

You might know us for our nutritional products - science-based nutrition products developed for people of all ages. We are behind some of the world's most trusted names in paediatric, adult and healthy-living nutritional products, including Ensure®, Glucerna®, EleCare® and PediaSure®, as well as specialty products that help meet the nutritional requirements of people with a variety of health conditions, such as cancer-induced weight loss, diabetes and kidney disease.

Abbott is a world leader in rapid point of care and infectious disease testing. Our ongoing development & partnerships in this area continues to ensure the confidence of blood supply across Australia and New Zealand with the knowledge that we are supporting the screening of 100% of all blood donors.

Our role in supporting heart health is central to our commitment to helping people enjoy "life to the fullest". Our provision of innovative stents, pacemakers and structural heart products, including "MitraClip" for the management of mitral valve regurgitation – is just one example of how we are impacting on maintaining cardiac health.

Abbott is doing innovative work in neuromodulation, helping patients suffering with Parkinson's disease or chronic pain to get their lives back. It is truly amazing to watch.

We actively foster public and private partnerships to advance science and technology across Australia and New Zealand. Abbott's molecular diagnostics business supports Australian health care institutions in the enablement of ground-breaking targeted cancer therapies to deliver truly personalized medicine.

Abbott integrates the work we do in Australia with our global development programs to bring new technologies to market around the world. We aim to inspire innovation and make a difference in healthcare. Abbott has been in Australia and New Zealand for more than 80 years. We are here to stay, and to positively impact and contribute to the well-being of all Australians and New Zealanders.
