Access to Medicine Index

Dutch initiative: Major investors sign up to Access to Medicine Index

The independent Access to Medicine Index is a global initiative aimed at improving access to medicine worldwide, especially for so called neglected diseases like tuberculosis, HIV/aids, diarrhoeal diseases, measles and malaria. Its main purpose is to raise awareness on access to drugs across the board, improve collaboration between stakeholders and facilitate equity and debt investment decision making for the investment community. The index will be used by stakeholders as an objective, rational, yet aspirational framework for benchmarking companies in the management of accessible medicines.

Dit soort initiatieven maakt me blij. Het betreft een van oorsprong Nederlands initiatief om medicijnen toegankelijker te maken, waarbij alle stakeholders meepraten. Inmiddels is het initiatief ondertekent door een tiental grote investerders, te weten: Bank Sarasin, CIS Cooperative Insurance, Ethos, F&C, Henderson Global Investors, CCR Access to Health Care Working Group, Morley, Schroders, SNS Asset Management and USS.
