About Us | Association for Accessible Medicines

About the Association

AAM works to ensure more generic and biosimilar medicines are more accessible to more people who need them.


 

The Association for Accessible Medicines improves access to safe, quality and effective medicine. Better access to medicine is relevant to everybody because, after all, we’re all patients at some point.

Health is the foundation for everything in life. Healthy people are better able to reach their full potential. Generics and biosimilars help more people in more places live healthier and longer.

  • Driving down the costs of existing drugs and developing new ones means people can afford the medicines they need.
  • Increasing competition means payers and patients have a choice in the marketplace.
  • Working to get safe, effective, and more-affordable medicines out of the lab and into the hands of the people who need them is a goal that touches not just individuals and families, but the overall economy, and the entire nation.

As manufacturers of 9 out of every 10 prescriptions dispensed in the U.S., members of the Association for Accessible Medicines form an integral, and powerful, part of the health care system.
