Medicines are crucial not only for improving our health and well-being, but also to fulfil our human right to health. But in the European Union (EU), the price of many new patented medicines is growing higher every year, jeopardising the ability of patients to access them when needed and threatening the sustainability of our healthcare systems.
In a new brochure from Health Action International’s EU Projects Team, we explore the work we do to improve access to safe, effective, and quality-assured medicines in the EU. Work that focuses on three main areas:
- Equitable access to affordable medicines
- Medicines safety, added therapeutic value and rational use of medicines
- Democratisation of Medicines Policy
We also look at our successes of last year and offer the chance to test your knowledge with an access to medicines quiz.
