Why Bupa

Bupa's purpose is helping people live longer, healthier, happier lives. Our status, as the global Bupa Group, a company limited by guarantee with no shareholders, enables us to make our customers our focus, reinvesting our profits globally to provide more and better healthcare for current and future customers.

Globally, we employ over 86,000 people, principally in the UK, Australia, Spain, Poland, Hong Kong, Chile, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, India, New Zealand, Thailand and the US.

We began in 1947 in the UK, when 17 provident associations joined together to form Bupa with the purpose of "preventing, relieving and curing sickness and ill health of every kind".
