According to CEO World Magazine, Daniel O’Day, Chairman and CEO of Gilead Sciences, was the 4th highest paid CEO in the healthcare industry in 2022 with total compensation of $21,621,253.

Advocates are protesting Gilead’s tone-deaf greed, particularly illegal restrictions the company placed early last year on access to 340B drug pricing for its branded hepatitis C treatments for certain pharmacies. Gilead now is one of more than 15 major drug companies that illegally have placed such restrictions on drugs.
