Separate from our Oncology/Immunology R&D and commercial operations, our Other Ventures segment operates in several countries in south-east Asia, comprising of a separate Prescription Drugs business and a Consumer Health business.
Our Prescription Drugs business includes a large-scale drug marketing and distribution platforms in China with over 3,000 manufacturing and commercial personnel. It mainly consists of:
Shanghai Hutchison Pharmaceuticals, a non-consolidated joint venture with a commercial team of about 2,200 staff managing the medical detailing and marketing of a range of own-brand prescription drug products across mainland China. This 50/50 joint venture is with Shanghai Pharmaceuticals, a leading pharmaceutical company in China.
Hutchison Sinopharm, a consolidated joint venture focused on providing commercial services for our own marketed drugs, as well as marketing third-party prescription drug products. This joint venture is 51% owned by HUTCHMED and 49% owned by Sinopharm, a leading distributor of pharmaceutical and healthcare products and a leading supply chain service provider in China.
Providing logistics services and marketing and distribution for prescription drugs manufactured by third parties.
In April 2014, we commenced operating Hutchison Sinopharm, a Shanghai-based Good Supply Practice-certified company focused on providing logistics services to, and distributing and marketing prescription drugs manufactured by third-party pharmaceutical companies in China. We intend to expand Hutchison Sinopharm to operate as a full-service, third-party prescription drug commercialization company in China. In the longer term, our marketing network's ability to adapt to effectively market new drugs will help us launch any new oncology or immunology drugs developed by our oncology R&D engine. Hutchison Sinopharm has entered into agreements with multinational and Chinese pharmaceutical manufacturers to market and distribute eight prescription products in China. We also continue to operate Hutchison Sinopharm’s legacy business, which is focused on providing Shanghai logistics and distribution services to third-party pharmaceutical companies.
