When patients do not have access to medication

Every year that goes by we watch literally millions of patients around the globe become “no-option”. We define “no-option” as any patient, with any serious medical condition:

  • where “existing” standard-of-care treatment has been exhausted
  • who will endure needless suffering or death without further interventions
  • where effective treatments are only available outside of their present sphere of care access.
