Forum: Cancer Drug Access

Socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds are an oft-cited factor rendering anticancer treatments unaffordable for many patients. Limited drug accessibility is a multifaceted issue, involving various aspects of drug discovery and development, and the mechanisms available for reimbursement of treatment costs.

This forum brings together cancer survivors, cancer advocates, clinicians, and representatives from the pharmaceutical industry for discussions of potential strategies for improving access to cancer medicines, and the challenges that come along with such endeavours.
