PROMOTING ACCESS TO AFFORDABLE PHARMACEUTICALS AND MEDICAL PRODUCTS


IFC works with generic pharmaceutical companies and global medical technology companies to bring the latest standard of care to emerging markets affordably.     

 

Innovations in medical technology are contributing to earlier and better diagnostics for patients, even those living in remote places.  Diagnostic solutions are available for a range of settings - home, doctor office, imaging center, ambulance, hospital bedside, central hospital location, or central lab.  

 

Meanwhile, advances in pharmaceuticals are bringing therapies that are tailored to individuals, more effective, and with fewer side effects.
