    Describe the future you see in 2035. What will be the challenges and opportunities for policymakers and other stakeholders to strengthen the access to quality, safe, efficacious and affordable medicines for all people?
    Yes. Out-of -pocket system is the barrier. Some sort of alternatives to out of pocket system and responsibility and accountability for EBM is the distant scenario. The challenges would be to monitor the quality, safety and efficacy of generic medicines and the opportunity lies in having develop an alternative system to OOP.

    If you could change one thing to make essential medicines more accessible for people in your country or region, what would it be?

    End OOP situation and make system responsible and accountable (electronic system) in the course of making essential medicines accessible as part of human right.

    What do “essential medicines” mean to you? In your opinion, what factors are important in determining whether a medicine is essential?
    Essential medicines are those considered important for improving quality of health care which are available and affordable by all people who need them. It is the relative usefulness and safety linked directly to improvement in quality of life vis-a-vis human development.
