About GAfPA

The path to optimal care is full of challenges.

Gaps in education and awareness feed growing health disparities. Patients find themselves adrift in a disease-centered health care system that targets individual symptoms rather than treating the whole patient. And institutions that determine the value of medications too often marginalize those most affected – patients and health care providers.

That’s why the Global Alliance for Patient Access works internationally to educate, empower and mobilize physicians and patient advocates. Together, their voices can inform policy that shapes a more equitable, accessible and patient-centered health care system.
