Accessibility, Affordability, and Quality of healthcare are serious challenges, and they're being driven by suppliers, regulators, policy-makers and physicians. The patients, who are directly affected by this, have no say in the discourse. Doctors are organised, industry is organised, but no one has ever thought of uniting/organizing the patients. To fill these gaps, the International Patients Union was formed.
The International Patients' Union has been ideated to bring patients on a single platform that will help connect patients across the country to doctors, policymakers, regulators, industry leaders, and other fellow patients. This will give them a platform to voice their opinions, contribute to policy formulation, and learn from each other how to better manage their disease conditions, aside from gaining authentic information on diseases, treatments, and providers.
