Unwrapping the drug pricing mystery & understanding solutions

 

Reposting this useful video from the HIV Prevention Justice Alliance:

President-elect Trump pledged during his campaign and at his transition press conference to address the skyrocketing price of drugs, joining bipartisan calls for action. However, drug pricing is incredibly complex and hidden behind an impenetrable curtain of secrecy. Are there any solutions to high drug prices that could be implemented quickly by the new administration and Congress?

The Fair Pricing Coalition (FPC) along with other various organizations and individuals signed a letter declaring that the upward spiral of drug prices are too high and will further prevent HIV and hepatitis C (HCV) patients from accessing life-saving drugs.

This webinar announces the release of “Tackling Drug Costs: A 100-Day Roadmap.” The report provides a roadmap that can be implemented quickly on the heels of growing bipartisan support for measures to control the skyrocketing costs of prescription medications.
