Advancing access to medicine is a global ambition that takes many forms across developed and developing countries. Specialist physicians at Shanghai No. 6 People’s Hospital in China tell us about their working day, their day-to-day role of teaching and learning, and their personal challenges and successes of improving patient care.
After centuries of being forgotten, a common herb was rediscovered that has cured malaria in millions of people. Today, access to medicine programs such as the Novartis Malaria Initiative make antimalarial drugs based on Artemisia annua available to the people who need it.
Where people lack access to basic medicines, common illnesses can be deadly. Sandoz has recently deepened its ongoing support of Americares, a global health nonprofit that provides donated medication and health programs for people in need.
Today, we published the first issue of our new Sandoz magazine ‘Making Access Happen – For better healthcare around the world.’ The magazine is a novel story-based approach to discussing the challenges many people around the world have accessing healthcare, possible solutions to the various problems and the pioneers who are working tirelessly to Make Access Happen.
