About One-World

Care. Commitment. Compassion.

OW 20 Anniversary

In 2021 we celebrated 20 years of providing U.S. pharmaceuticals to the international healthcare community.  From humble beginnings as a bootstrapping start-up, we’ve grown into a multimillion-dollar company serving healthcare facilities and bridging the treatment gap for 1000’s of patients worldwide. 

We love what we do, we adore our customers and we enjoy our teammates each and every day!   

Our core principles:


Care For Our People

We know our past and future success is due to the individuals that make up the One-World Team. To support continued individual and company growth, we created the One-World Innovation Lab. Headed up by Chris Hanks, the lab is an opportunity for team members to provide input on innovative process improvements while learning entrepreneurial leadership skills.

Care for our Community

Providing donations to a range of community non-profits including:

  • Food Pantries
  • Children and family support centers
  • Educational institutions

Care for our environment

Committed to minimizing our environmental impact by:

  • Using biodegradable, climate neutral paper packaging materials
  • Investing in reusable packing containers
  • Recycling cardboard, metals, and wastepaper

Chris leads the One-World Innovation Lab. He is also the founder and executive director of the Institute for Entrepreneurship, one of the leading think tanks in entrepreneurship.


Passion creates our commitment to excellence

We conduct our business with the highest level of integrity by honoring our commitments and treating our business partners and each other with respect. We believe in building open and honest long-term relationships and value the opportunity to help people live longer, better lives.

Compassion is our inspiration

We have all been touched by life altering health conditions and always consider the needs of the patients through our work. This drives the superior level of our service, the highest quality of product care, and our ambition to extend our patient reach into the farthest regions of the world.
