Since 2018, Health Policy Analysis Center has been implementing the activities within the framework of the ACCISS Study (Addressing the Challenge and Constraints of Insulin Sources and Supply), which is supported by Stichting ICF and The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.
The innovative global study, Addressing the Challenge and Constraints of Insulin Sources and Supply (ACCISS), began in 2015 to identify the causes of poor availability and high insulin prices, and develop policies and interventions to improve access to this essential medicine, particularly in low- and middle-income countries.
ACCISS is managed by Health Action International, and co-led with the University of Geneva and Boston University. Health Action International is a non-profit organization that conducts research and advocacy to advance policies that enable access to medicines and rational medicine use for all people around the world.
In its second phase (2018-2020), the ACCISS study, working with county partners In Peru, Tanzania, Mali and Kyrgyzstan piloted the tools and interventions (http://accisstoolkit.haiweb.org/) at a country level while continuing to work globally to address inequities and inefficiencies in the insulin market.
