Prescription Justice, a 501c4 non-profit organization, brings together doctors, lawyers, public health and consumer advocates, and political activists dedicated to lowering drug prices in the United States. We advocate for all Americans, registered with all political parties, who are sick of high drug prices, and tired of greedy drug companies and the politicians they control. We also stand up for those who need to access more affordable imported medications now and stand against actions by the pharmaceutical industry that mislead and misinform the public.
Forty-five million Americans did not fill a prescription in 2016 due to cost. Millions often choose between food and medicine in the world’s richest country. Forgoing prescribed medication leads to sickness and death, and even larger healthcare costs from hospitalizations when patients stop taking their medications. Prescription Justice is dedicated to ending this crisis of high drug prices.
The National Student Advocacy Committee (NSAC) brings together student advocates from various undergraduate and medical institutions across the country to build support for and further Prescription Justice’s legislative and policy agenda to end the crisis of high drug prices. The newly-created NSAC is developing advocacy materials for students and other activists, reaching out to members of Congress, and collaborating with like-minded public interest organizations around the country to push congress to take forceful action to lower drug prices.
