Access Campaign

In 1999, in the wake of Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, MSF launched the Access Campaign. Its purpose has been to push for access to, and the development of, life-saving and life-prolonging medicines, diagnostic tests and vaccines for patients in MSF programmes and beyond.
