Many of our member organizations play a critical role in providing access to health care in vulnerable communities in the United States and around the world. As shareholders in major pharmaceutical companies, we bring the realities of these communities into our shareholder dialogues, as we call for greater access and affordability to medicines to treat neglected tropical diseases, TB, HIV/AIDS and malaria – as well as chronic diseases that are affecting more and more people in the developing world. We urge companies to expand their research and development activities to develop life-saving treatments for neglected patients.

AbbVie, Bristol Myers Squibb, Eli Lilly, Johnson & Johnson, Merck and Pfizer are among the companies we engage on this critical issue.
