What we do

Since the launch of the first generic contraceptive pill in Belgium, Mithra always focused on innovation for women.

After years of research and development, our pipeline today includes late-stage development products, potential blockbusters and complex therapeutics in the fields of contraception and menopause. These projects are powered by our Mithra CDMO, our unique R&D and manufacturing platform.

Over 20 years of women’s health

Mithra has always been defined by its science and its innovation. Along the years, our mission always remains the same: innovate to serve women.

Today we’re closer than ever to revolutionizing the field of women’s health in both contraception and menopause.
