Voices of Access

Tens of millions of people entrust their health to generics and biosimilars. Hear their stories.
The Association for Accessible Medicines (AAM) launched the Voices of Access Report and Patient Stories at the Access! 2022 conference February 14-16 -  Event recap.

The Voices of Access Report includes a quote from Dispensary of Hope’s CEO Christopher Palombo.

Dispensary of Hope team members attended the event to connect with medication donors and deliver on the ongoing commitment of expanding access to medication for the most vulnerable.

The Association for Accessible Medicines works to improve access to safe, quality and effective medicine. Better access to medicine is relevant to everybody because, after all, we’re all patients at some point.

Health is the foundation for everything in life. Healthy people are better able to reach their full potential. Generics and biosimilars help more people in more places live healthier and longer.

  • Driving down the costs of existing drugs and developing new ones means people can afford the medicines they need.
  • Increasing competition means payers and patients have a choice in the marketplace.
  • Working to get safe, effective, and more-affordable medicines out of the lab and into the hands of the people who need them is a goal that touches not just individuals and families, but the overall economy, and the entire nation.

As manufacturers of 9 out of every 10 prescriptions dispensed in the U.S., members of the Association for Accessible Medicines form an integral, and powerful part of the health care system.

Dispensary of Hope, a national nonprofit organization headquartered in Nashville, TN, obtains prescription medication from generous donor pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributes them to its partner network of over 200 sites nationwide. The network dispenses over 3,000 prescriptions a day to patients in need. Staff and operations meet the highest medication distribution standards, from manufacturer to the dispensing site – as evidenced by industry accreditations and memberships (National Association of Boards of Pharmacy, MedSurplus Alliance, Association for Accessible Medicines and Healthcare Distribution Alliance) and strict adherence to the Drug Supply Chain Security Act.
