MA at a Glance

We Work for Health of Massachusetts seeks to educate our elected leaders, the news media and the communities they serve about the important contributions these companies and their employees make to the health and economic security of individuals, local communities, and to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The biopharmaceutical sector directly supported 50,404 jobs in Massachusetts in 2011, and an additional 129,290 jobs outside the sector. These additional jobs are with vendors and suppliers such as construction companies and I.T. companies, and jobs generated by the sector’s employees such as day care centers and restaurants. The industry not only helps drive the Massachusetts economy, but also leads the world in life-saving research and supports a vibrant patient advocacy community. Biopharmaceutical research companies and their employees play a critical role in improving the health and well-being of Massachusetts’ patients by delivering life-saving, life-enhancing advancements in medicine. In addition to working to improve health and economic viability, many biopharmaceutical companies provide philanthropic outreach in local communities across Massachusetts through grants and programs supporting access to affordable health coverage and medicine, primary and secondary education, social services, arts, and other community needs.
