The International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers & Associations is a non-profit, non-governmental Organization (NGO) representing national industry associations and companies from both developed and developing countries. Member companies of the IFPMA are research-based pharma-ceutical, biotech and vaccine companies.
In the research and development pipeline, the pharmaceutical industry is working on more than 700 new medicines and vaccines for infectious diseases including HIV/AIDS, cancer, heart disease and stroke, and diseases that disproportionately affect women, such as osteoporosis.
The main objectives of IFPMA are:
to encourage a global policy environment that is conducive to innovation in medicine, both therapeutic and preventative, for the benefit of patients around the world;
to contribute industry expertise and foster collaborative relationships and partnerships with international organizations, national institutions, governments and non-governmental organizations that are dedicated to the improvement of public health, especially in developing and emerging countries;
to assure regular contact and experience-sharing and coordinate the efforts of its members towards the realisation of the above objectives.
