high-priced Medicines and Lack of Needs-Driven Innovation: A global crisis 
that fuels inequality
New opportunities and challenges one year after the landmark  report of 
the UN Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel on Access to Medicines
On 14 September 14 2016, the UN Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel on 
Access to Medicines publicly released its final report entitled ‘Promoting 
innovation and access to health technologies’.
One year after the release of the landmark report and building upon 
Oxfam’s September 2016 assessment, this paper provides an update on where 
the HLP report and its recommendations stand. It assesses the level of 
implementation by countries and institutions – especially the UN and the 
World Health Organization – and recommends ways to use the report to 
improve both innovation and access to medicines.
