About PharmAccess Group Foundation
With headquarters in Amsterdam and most of its staff based in four country offices across sub-Saharan Africa, PharmAccess is an international NGO with a history of reimagining what is possible. They challenge the notion that exclusion from healthcare is an inevitable consequence of living in poorer countries and identify the opportunities and partners – both private and public, needed to bring about transformation. This approach was instilled by the founder Dr Joep Lange, a world leading aids researcher who went against the status quo in 2001 when he proved that working with the private sector could play a critical role in delivering life-saving antiretroviral therapy for HIV/AIDS treatment in Africa. PharmAccess has since evolved to embrace other opportunities for healthcare for all, with a particular focus on what the digital revolution can deliver.
Initiatives such as SafeCare equip healthcare providers with clinical standards for quality improvement that investors and patients can trust. The Medical Credit Fund drives more money into the system - it offers loans to clinics to stimulate growth and encourage new ways of financing healthcare. They use innovative digital health platforms to make healthcare affordable and accessible for everyone via even the most basic mobile phone. For governments, donors, healthcare providers and insurers looking to reach more people, the mobile platform M-TIBA operates as a sophisticated channel for financing and valuable health data. They work on improving the whole health system so that everyone has access to care when they need it, not just when they can afford it.
