About the Access to Medicine Foundation

The Access to Medicine Foundation is a non-profit organisation based in Amsterdam. Our mission is to stimulate and guide pharmaceutical companies to do more for the 2 billion people worldwide who cannot access the medicine they need.    

The core pillar of our work is analysing and comparing how pharmaceutical companies address the availability, affordability and accessibility of their products in low- and middle-income countries. We benchmark companies against each other, and identify best practices and progress gaps. To turn our research into real-world change, we engage with leading organisations, including companies, governments, investors and NGOs. Our main research programmes are the Access to Medicine Index and the Antimicrobial Resistance Benchmark.

As of December 2019, 98 investors (collectively managing more than $13 trillion assets) have signed our investor statement and committed to using the research of the Access to Medicine Foundation in their investment analysis and engagement with companies. International standards and tools such as the SASB Standard for the Pharmaceutical Industry and GIIN Navigating Impact have made explicit reference to our work. Numerous international leaders have expressed their support to our innovative approach.
