Today, Dr. Kieran Harkin, Dr. Ciara Conlon and Robbie Lawlor spoke on behalf of Access to Medicines Ireland in parliament. During a series of committee hearings for the Oireachtas Health Committee National Medicines Strategy, we were invited to discuss proposed reforms to the current model used to incentivise research and development. Every member of parliament present agreed that action needed to be taken. This is a positive step for Ireland in taking action against the extortionate high prices of medicines. We welcome further discussions with the Health Committee and we hope to work together in future to increase access to medicines for all.
