Access to Medicines an Issue of Social Justice. Contact N°196 - December 2013
(2013; 15 pages)

Abstract

EPN believes access to medicines is a basic human right and every effort should be made to ensure that all actors in the health sector take up the challenge of ensuring that medicines are available, accessible and affordable to all, including the poor and marginalised. This sentence is taken from the EPN strategy (2010-2015).

Access to medicines is still number one of the four strategic priority areas of EPN.
