Global Access Program

Working hand in hand to provide innovative diagnostics solutions to those who need it most

Universal access to quality healthcare and medical innovation remains a global challenge.
 
To address this challenge, many of the world's top relief and aid organizations have joined together with an ambitious goal: to end stop many diseases.
 
In 2014, Roche announced, the Global Access Program. In 2018, the Program was expanded to include Tuberculosis (TB), Hepatitis B and C (HBV and HCV), and Human Papillomavirus (HPV).
 
Roche continues to partner with national governments, local healthcare facilities, communities and international agencies, including UNAIDS, CHAI, Unitaid, the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), Global Fund, and Centres for Disease Control (CDC), toestablish The Global Access Program that would go beyound providing diagnostic tests.

 

 

Since its inception, the program has expanded substantially in menu and geographic footprint to provide increased access to diagnostics at affordable pricing for qualifying organizations in eligible countries with the highest disease burden.
