Universal Access and Affordable Medicines
Our campaign promotes transparency, accountability and the public interest in the field of pharmaceuticals. Our evidence-based advocacy aims to guarantee better and affordable medicines for Europe by questioning and reforming the current pharmaceutical business model and calling for better access to medicines for all.
