In 1996 Ciba-Geigy merged with Sandoz to form Novartis. In 1997, 2000, 2006, and 2007 it divested its specialty chemicals, agribusiness, nutrition, and medical nutrition and baby foods businesses, respectively. Novartis has also made acquisitions to strengthen its position in the healthcare market, and now generates 100% of revenues from healthcare, and operates through five diverse segments.

The global population is growing older, and Novartis Pharmaceuticals provides products aimed at high- and middle-income countries, where a higher proportion of the population reaches old age. Novartis Pharmaceuticals' product lines reflect the most common causes of death in these countries.
While vaccines are estimated to save the lives of over 3 million people annually, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that over 3 million people die annually due to a lack of access to vaccines. The Vaccines and Diagnostics division has a product development portfolio of 15 potential products in various stages of clinical development.
The Consumer Health segment represents only 8% of sales. Despite this, the segment is important in providing stable growth to offset fluctuations in the less stable segments of Sandoz and Pharmaceuticals.
