The working group on Medicines organised a one-day Seminar on access to quality-assured medicines – debating issues related to the access and quality assurance of medicines in low- and middle-income countries.

The timing of the seminar was chosen to 'celebrate' the ten years commitment (via the Be-cause Health Charter on Quality of Medicines) of Belgian stakeholders to assure the quality of medicines supplied through humanitarian and cooperation programs. We hope that the seminar has contributed to building the road map for the next 10 years, to face the remaining obstacles that prevent to achieve universal access to quality-assured medicines and other medical products.

Minister De Croo opened the event, which hosted Prof Hans Hogerzeil as key note speaker, and international guest speakers bringing experiences of Global Fund, UNDP, DEVCO, and African and Belgian stakeholders engaged for access to quality-assured medicines.
