Survey to assess the opinion of medical students and junior doctors on accessibility of Essential Medicines for all
About this Survey
Last year The Lancet Youth Commission on Essential Medicines Policies (YCEMP) was formed to reflect the youth perspective on the issue of equitable access of Essential Medicine and to make further recommendations on solving the global health issue of accessibility to Essential Medicines. The European Medical Students' Association (EMSA) representing the voice of medical students around Europe among other organizations such as WHO acknowledges accessibility to Essential Medicines for all as an important and relevant global health matter. We are collecting the opinion of medical students and junior doctors on this topic.

The survey is consisting of 2 sections 21 questions on personal information and YCEMP recommendations respectively. Completing the survey takes around 10 minutes. Please READ carefully the following terms BEFORE completing it.
