How can we make better medicines available for more patients in Denmark?

Our current patent-based research and development system has shown difficulty to deliver adequate, most needed and affordable medicines. We need to have a conversation about alternative research and development approaches to safeguard the affordability of new medicines and ensure innovative medicines meeting patient needs.

Enhedslisten, SF and Alternativet in collaboration with Universities Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM) arrange a conference to start this conversation.

The conference will take place in the Danish Parliament, in Fællessalen Thursday the 17th of May 2018 from 2-5pm. The event is free and open to everybody with an interest in healthcare, medical research and health politics.
