The Access to Medicine Foundation has been invited to various WHA side-events that focus on the role of pharmaceutical companies in access to medicine. The topics on the table include achieving the SDGs, combating antimicrobial resistance, ensuring access to vaccines and addressing global shortages of medicines and vaccines. They have been organised by or in collaboration with, among others, Roche, Novo Nordisk, PATH, Novartis, Takeda and GSK. For example, Jayasree Iyer will participate in a panel discussion on “Driving Change in NCDs through Innovative and Sustainable Collaborations.” Here, she will define the characteristics of successful collaborations and partnerships to address NCDs. These characteristics have been distilled by the Foundation during its 10 years’ experience of making the Access to Medicine Index.
