Devex — in partnership with Management Sciences for Health — is launching Access to Medicines, a three week-long campaign that will analyze and amplify discussion on global access to medicines. The campaign will examine the challenges of access, identify how stakeholders can maximize investments and explore the future of medicine innovation in order to save lives, empower communities and build resilient health systems. Access to medicine is an essential piece to people-centered health care.
