'GSK makes choices in Consumer Healthcare' is a NEWS EXTRA publication that provides rapid insights into GlaxoSmithKline's current strategy for its Consumer Healthcare business. The company says it is now the world's leading OTC player following the formation of a global consumer healthcare joint venture with Novartis on 2 March 2015.

She also highlights the importance of switching and other forms of innovation, as well as greater penetration in categories and countries, and opportunities in emerging markets.
