Equality and sustainability are our most important guiding principles and influence all areas of our work. We aim to develop effective treatments that are sustainable for both patients and the wider world. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), antibiotic resistance is a growing problem and one of the biggest threats to global public health. For Gedea Biotech, sustainability is a core activity – not posturing. Our business concept is to create an antibiotic-free treatment for infections that works for as many people as possible.
Health goals

Gedea Biotech is working hard to help achieve three of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals:


Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls

The contribution made to society by women and girls is facilitated by good health. Vaginal infections are limiting, both physically and socially. With pHyph, girls and women can get access to an effective, non-prescription antibiotic-free treatment for vaginal infections.


Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages

The WHO regards antibiotic resistance as a global threat to public health. Gedea is actively contributing to the UN’s third Sustainable Development Goal by developing an antibiotic-free treatment for vaginal infections. It is also hoped that in the long term pHyph may be able to reduce the risk of premature birth.


Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all

Antibiotics that are carried in wastewater out into the sea and watercourses have a negative impact on both plant and animal life. Gedea’s products are entirely free from antibiotics and, if they do happen to enter the environment, are not harmful to plants or animals.
