Our strategy

We’re fighting to eliminate out-of-pocket costs for patients, extend insurance to everyone in America, and ensure that all drugs go generic without undue delay.

Raise awareness

Patients aren’t getting proper treatment. Everyone needs to know.

Our team of journalists is telling the stories of patients left behind by America’s healthcare system. We also draw attention to the problem of drugs that fail to go generic on time, costing America more and eliminating the incentive that drives the industry to innovate.

Advocate for healthcare reform

Name-brand drugs are like rent: their costs keep rising. Generics are the equivalent of a mortgage: fixed costs and stability. All drugs need to go generic without undue delay once their patents expire so society can own what we've invested in.
