An Open Letter to Congress in Support of Legislation to Improve Access to Affordable Prescription Drugs

We, the undersigned organizations representing millions of consumer and grassroots advocates, public health experts, healthcare providers and clinical researchers across the country, applaud bicameral introduction of The Improving Access to Affordable Prescription Drugs Act. During a time when the majority of Americans think that lowering the cost of prescription drugs should be a top healthcare priority for Congress and the Trump administration, this Act meets that demand.i It provides a responsible approach to increasing the public’s access to affordable medicines while saving taxpayer dollars.
