This report is intended to spur policymakers into action by providing ideas, principles and policy proposals to create a better health innovation system that delivers innovative medicines for all who need them. After articulating the key problems of the current model of pharmaceutical innovation (e.g. public health needs unmet, high prices, lack of transparency, and an increasingly financialised business model), the report presents key principles that would underpin a public-interest and health-driven approach to pharmaceutical innovation: directed mission setting, collaboration and transparency, affordability and access, and long-term horizons. The remedies that follow are divided into two parts:  first identifying immediate actions that governments can take to tackle the urgent crisis in patient access to medicines, and then a transformative approach based on mission-oriented research and innovation, learning from experiments across the world.
