Access to drugs

License to Heal

Healthcare costs have been rising significantly over the past years, so action is needed to ensure that healthcare products remain accessible to and affordable for everyone. The development of a drug implies a social responsibility to guarantee accessibility of this drug. Drug prices are disproportionate to the costs of research & development. A third of the global population does not have access to essential medication.

The cooperating Political Youth Organisations are convinced that drugs and other medical products should be accessible to everyone. We feel supported in this matter by several international treaties, in which the universal right to health has been recorded. To realize general accessibility, all stakeholders in the development of medicine need to take their social responsibility. Since stakeholders cannot or will not take this responsibility in the current system, the government needs to set a framework.
