The Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research 2014 report applies a systems approach in illustrating major challenges and advances in the access, affordability and appropriate use of medicines in low- and middle-income countries, using country case-studies. Following a description of how the access-to-medicines field has evolved since the 1970s, the report explores specific links between medicines and universal health coverage,  considers the role of innovation in developing and delivering medicines, and addresses the pluralistic health system around medicines, with a particular focus on health market systems. It concludes with recommendations for decision-makers to inform, monitor and evaluate the reforms required.

Moderator: John-Arne Røttingen, Chair of the Board, Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research, WHO, Geneva
