The African Civil Society Platform on Access to Medicines
Who We Are?
We are a network of over 60 different African based civil society organisations who are actively involved in the promotion of Access to medicines issues for the benefit of the African majority population. We set up this network at the end of 2014.
AIDS Accountability International (AAI) was previously a co-ordination partner for the network until 2017.
What is Our Long-term Objective?
Improve access to quality and affordable medicines for all underprivileged citizens of Africa especially in the sub-Saharan region of the continent.
What is Our Mid-term Objective?
Create a branded, informed, dynamic and influential Pan African civil society movement that seeks to promote the successful implementation of the Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Plan for Africa (PMPA), TRIPS and all other relevant policy commitments in order to increase access to quality and affordable medicines for all underprivileged citizens of Africa especially in the sub-Saharan region of the continent.
What is Our Short-term Objective?
Conduct research that creates greater transparency around the implementation process of the PMPA, TRIPS and all other relevant policy commitments in order to use these research findings to address the emerging gaps in terms of meeting the set targets.
Create spaces and opportunities in order to raise the profile of the issues related to the promotion of access to medicines in Africa and in particular the implementation process of the PMPA, TRIPS and all other relevant policy commitments.
Hold leaders accountable for action required for the promotion of access to medicines in Africa and in particular the implementation process of the PMPA, TRIPS and all other relevant policy commitments.
