At Health Action International, we are dedicated to advancing policies that enable all people to realise the human right to the highest attainable level of health. To make this a reality, our team and global network carry out research to inform evidence-based advocacy for equitable access to affordable medicines and healthcare.

Inequality, overstretched health systems, climate change, the impact of conflict, the growth of new technologies and the irrational use of medicines are just some of the factors that threaten global health and well-being, with vulnerable and marginalised communities at particular risk of harm. Health Action International focuses on creating long-lasting change to government and industry policies and practices, rather than on temporary solutions. We pursue advocacy from the patient level right up to the highest levels of government, including through our ‘Official Relations’ status with the World Health Organization.

As a result of our work, more people can access the medicines and services they need because they are affordable and available, and health commodities on the market are safe, effective and address true health needs.
