Eyes on Insulin

For the past two year, the ACCISS Study has worked to identify the global key barriers to access to insulin. To commemorate World Diabetes Day and diabetes awareness month, the ACCISS Study is sharing a series of short videos and a podcast that underline these critical issues and influences that impact the insulin market. From their work, they have not only identified barriers, but also opportunities and potential interventions that will going forward improve insulin acess.



These short issue-based videos were taken during the ACCISS Advisory Group Meeting in Amsterdam at the end of October 2016. From biosimilars to how mark-ups impact the final insulin price, these videos cover some of the critical barriers to  and opportunities for improving access to insulin.  You can scroll the videos or use the menus on the right to watch!
