ITPC was created by communities, for communities, and this value is central to our work.
Treat People Right is the core of ITPC’s work, providing information and education to people on an individual basis to understand and take ownership of their health so that they can then advocate for their own needs.
Once people are empowered, we fight to ensure that the medicines and services they need are available, free or reasonably priced, and accessible: Make Medicines Affordable.
Communities also need to monitor in real time the barriers to staying healthy and raise the alarm when there are problems – from medicine stock-outs to discriminatory service providers to human rights issues. We do this through Watch What Matters and are currently running Citizen Science.
Finally, none of this is possible without powerful communities that have the capacity to organize, take action, and create the change they desire, so we work collectively to Build Resilient Communities.
