What is the Campaign?
Médecins Sans Frontières set up the Access Campaign in 1999 to push for access to, and the development of life-saving and life prolonging medicines, diagnostic tests and vaccines for patients in MSF programmes and beyond. We are a multi-disciplinary team that includes doctors, pharmacists, scientists, lawyers, as well as advocacy and communications experts. We also work with patient groups and other civil society organisations in response to their concerns over access to treatment.
