About ITPC

The International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC) is a global activist network (GAN) fighting for universal access to treatment. ITPC is an issue-based organization that uses HIV as an entry point to the right to health and partners with affected communities across the world to address treatment access issues for diseases including diabetes, hepatitis C and hypertension. Our GAN is a dynamic movement that invites and fosters the participation and leadership of hundreds of treatment activists through sharing of information and collaborative policy work, monitoring, and advocacy.
