> 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.
