The theme for this years conference is: Access to essential medicines – How can we ensure global equality?
Essential medicines is necessary to ensure global health. Actual access to the vital medicine highly depends on the national contracts with the industry, the regional infrastructure and the purchasing power of the relevant marked. Especially high developmental costs and raising prices on medicine endangers the access to medicine now and in the future.
Limited access to medicine can result in inexpedient consumption and use of bad quality copy medicine. This can debase the life quality and increase the mortality among patients all around the world.
The theme of this year will deal with the discussion about whether you globally can ensure equal access to essential medicines. How do you make sure that every patient around the world is guaranteed the right medicine and the right dose, and how do you ensure realistic medicine prices and evidence-based information with every drug?
