“Health Action International has a strong track record of taking an independent, evidence-based approach to improving evidence-based medicine.”

Guido Rasi
Executive Director of the European Medicines Agency

“The mission of the European Medicines Agency is to foster scientific excellence in the evaluation and supervision of medicines, for the benefit of public and animal health. As a public body, we do this on behalf of patients and the wider society, aware that our actions will be scrutinised and sometimes challenged. This public scrutiny is integral to our work and helps us address the needs of our many stakeholders. We acknowledge Health Action International’s track record of constructive and fair engagement with us over a period of almost 20 years, both as a partner in our outreach to patients and consumers, and as a strong public interest advocate on wider public health issues. It is an important and valuable relationship that we look forward to continuing and developing in the years ahead.”

“Health Action International plays a unique role in coordinating the efforts of civil society towards improving access to, and the rational use of, effective, safe and affordable medicines in public health. Its potential for fostering the active participation of the access to medicines community in policy development will be even more important in the future as the challenge of Universal Health Coverage begins to be met.”
