Empowering Advocates for Advanced Medicine
Every day across the globe, advanced treatments offer new hope for patients. New advances in medicine may treat or cure diseases that were disabling, even terminal.
But they also present new challenges for policymakers and governments, who must ask: How will these treatments be approved? Regulated? Paid for? To answer these questions, policymakers need to hear from those who will be directly affected — patients and physicians.
That’s why GAfPA works internationally to educate, empower and mobilize physicians and patient advocates. Their unique insight can guide policymakers to make informed decisions about value, safety, cost and, ultimately, patient access.
