On January 28, AIDS Action Europe conducted a conference on affordability of and access to medicine and diagnostics titled "The right to health vs. market priorities. How do we want to end AIDS without affordable medication and health interventions?"

They keynote speech of the conference was given by Anand Govard, who is a long term prominent human rights advocate in the areas of health.

Then the conference continued with two great panel discussions: “What can we learn from the COVID-19 pandemic when attention and funding is diverted from most other health areas?” and “Civil Society interventions in ensuring that no one is left behind. Transparency in R&D and pharmaceutical market, and TRIPS flexibilities.”
Our second panel discussion topic contributed an especially heated discussion around the importance of transparency in Research and Development.

We are grateful to our speakers, panelists and facilitators for a great discussion!
