Coalities nodig voor betere toegang tot medicijnen

Writing for the NRC, Daan van Lant covers the publication of the 2018 Access to Medicine. The article highlights the industry's engagement in priority R&D and the small number of companies developing vital projects. 

The piece also emphasises the important of collaboration between large pharmaceutical companies, governments and donors to improve access to medicine for people living in poorer countries. Daan quotes Jayasree K. Iyer, Executive Director of the Access to Medicine, on the the fight against malaria as a good example of such collaboration: "The common goal is to have the disease banned in 2030. The pharmaceutical companies have decided not to make any profit on the malaria drugs. That is a recipe for success."
