Health Action International submitted a joint position paper to the European Commission regarding its research and development (R&D) programme, Horizon 2020. Coauthored with eight other civil society organisations, the position paper calls for substantial changes to be made to how the European Commission funds R&D projects for new medicines, to allow for greater public access to the innovations that it helps to fund.
