Last year, U.S. spending on prescription drugs was at a record breaking $425 billion before discounts, and is expected to rise by 22% annually over the next five years, which is 400%, or over $600 billion by 2020. As Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, Americans across the country concerned with the soaring costs of prescription medications, will be looking to President Trump and Congress for solutions to address this national crisis.
President-Elect Trump’s top priority for healthcare reform is to repeal the Affordable Care Act, but most Americans are more concerned about prescription drug prices than Obamacare.
Looks are not what counts but…as you may have noticed, our website has been completely redesigned with the goals of creating greater clarity of purpose and usability. In other words, the new site is not only easier on the eyes but contains a far more intuitive information architecture and navigation process for our visitors. It will also better enable us to educate consumers, activists, and elected officials about the work of PJAG and its mission to bring justice to Americans who can’t afford the medications they need to stay healthy and live. It’s a site that is more worthy of that mission. We’re just sorry it took so long!
Prescription Justice Action Group (PJAG), a new non-profit organization, is here to help bring justice to American consumers who are literally sick from the high cost of prescription medication. New federal regulations and other actions by the government and pharmaceutical industry, particularly toward online pharmacies, threaten access to safe and affordable imported medication. PJAG recently formed to coordinate a response to these developments and to advocate for policies to bring down drug prices here at home.
