Before joining Viatris, Maria spent over 6 years at Mylan, most recently as Head of Sales. During her time here she worked closely with the Department of Health and key patient advocate bodies to gain reimbursement under the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme for a medication for Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) against human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. This provided Australians with access to an important indication that wasn’t previously reimbursed.
