ACT UP-BASEL : WHO ARE WE ?
Act Up Basel acts to promote universal access to affordable medicines of assured quality. Whether it is the developed world or developing countries, access to treatment and care is an issue that concerns each one of us.
From major pandemics (tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, malaria), to neglected diseases (chagas, sleeping sickness, etc.), to chronic diseases (cancers, diabetes, respiratory diseases, cardiovascular or neurological), many people through the world spend disproportionate amounts to access expensive treatment and care. Research for rare diseases (genetic disorders or "tropical") is neglected by big pharmaceutical companies and often whole populations are ignored because they do not constitute markets profitable enough for the pharmaceutical industry to pay attention to. .
