Every year, thousands of patients and care givers across the globe face the dire situation of discovering that the medicine they need is unavailable to them. It could be that it is still in development, a discontinued line, or simply unavailable in the area they reside in.
In these difficult times, patient advocacy groups can play a critical role as a trusted resource for their patients, providing timely and accurate information about the process for accessing unlicensed medicines, and explaining the roles of all the different stakeholders involved.

We would love to hear from you!
