Knowledge Portal for Innovation and Access to Medicines

The Knowledge Network for Innovation and Access to Medicines launched a new online tool providing open-access information, research and analysis on policies relating to pharmaceutical innovation and access. The Knowledge Portal, available at, aims to make existing knowledge more widely-available and easily accessible to researchers, advocates, practitioners and policymakers to improve policies for innovation and globally-equitable access to medicines. It is a project of the Global Health Centre at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, supported by a grant of the Open Society Foundations.
