Dear colleagues,

As part of our plans for the upcoming WHA71, please see in this link<https://www.msfaccess.org/sites/default/files/MSF_assets/Access/Docs/WHO-WHA-71_MSF-briefing-shortages-and-access-Agenda-Item-11-5.pdf> MSF Briefing on Agenda item 11.5 "Addressing the global shortage of, and access to, medicines and vaccines<https://www.msfaccess.org/sites/default/files/MSF_assets/Access/Docs/WHO-WHA-71_MSF-briefing-shortages-and-access-Agenda-Item-11-5.pdf>" in which,  based on MSF's experiences providing healthcare to vulnerable people, we urge the WHO Secretariat and Member States to prioritize action in five areas, as part of the roadmap which more likely the Secretariat will be asked to develop, to ensure patient-centred innovation and access to medicines, vaccines and diagnostics (R&D, IP, Transparency, regulatory aspects and policy coherence).

I hope you find this an useful document.
