With the NovoHealth programme, Novo Nordisk promotes and supports healthy living for employees. We see this as part of our commitment as a healthcare company and leader in diabetes care. Leading a healthy lifestyle is the best way to fight the diabetes epidemic.

NovoHealth covers four global standards, ensuring that all employees:

  • Work in a smoke-free work environment
  • Have access to healthy food in the work place
  • Are supported in being physically active
  • Are offered an individual health check every second year

In this section, we report on some of the activities that employees participated in during 2009.



Novo Nordisk is a global leader in diabetes care, driven by a commitment to help people live longer, healthier and more productive lives. It is this determination that drives our internal NovoHealth global initiative.
