>> Poverty-related and neglected diseases, such as HIV/AIDS,  
>> tuberculosis (TB) and malaria are treatable and preventable  
>> diseases, which take a deadly toll on approximately 5 million  
>> people a year and disproportionately affect the world's poorest  
>> people. The human and socioeconomic impact of these diseases is  
>> severe. Innovation and research for new tools to better prevent,  
>> diagnose and treat them are crucial, as well as accessibility and  
>> affordability of those tools to all patients.
>>
>> Raising the profile of poverty-related diseases and access to  
>> medicines amongst EU policy makers and other key stakeholders has  
>> been a top priority of the European Parliament Working Group on  
>> Innovation, Access to Medicines and Poverty-Related Diseases. Two  
>> years after its creation, the Working Group gathers around 190  
>> members ranging from MEPs to European Commission officials,  
>> diplomats, academics, ACP MPs and civil society organisations. We  
>> aim to provide a forum where these actors can engage in a  
>> meaningful dialogue and collaborate closely while ensuring that  
>> European policies deliver a coherent, comprehensive and pro-active  
>> response to address the need for innovation, access to medicines  
>> and quality healthcare for poverty-related diseases.
>>
>>
>>
>>
>> “Join us and help make a difference in the global fight against  
>> poverty-related diseases”
>> David Martin MEP, Chair
