Progress Made Worldwide To Improve Access To Medicines But Challenges Remain, Devex Reports

Devex: Bringing medicines to the world
“An estimated two billion people lack access to essential medicines, most of them living in Asia and Africa, according to the World Health Organization. While progress has been made in the past three decades, thanks in part to a renewed focus placed on diseases such as HIV and AIDS, malaria, and polio, much remains to be done to ensure access to treatment for all. … Governments, intergovernmental organizations, development organizations, and pharmaceutical companies therefore have no choice but to work together to achieve results…” (Halais, 7/18).
