The Campaign for Sustainable Rx Pricing (CSRxP) today announced that the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) joined the Campaign. Founded 70 years ago, the AAFP represents 124,900 physicians and medical students nationwide, and is the only medical society devoted solely to primary care.
AAFP joins a broad-based campaign that includes hospitals, physicians, nurses, consumers, health plans, pharmacists, and businesses. This powerful partnership of every major industry leader is working for solutions to bring down the rising prices of prescription drugs.
“AAFP’s members are the front line of medical care in this country and are forceful advocates for the patients that they serve,” said CSRxP Executive Director John Rother. “AAFP brings a unique perspective and voice to our partnership that represents nearly every aspect of healthcare in the United States.”
“As physicians, our work focuses on ensuring our patients have access to the highest quality of care, including the prescriptions they need,” said John Meigs, Jr., MD, president of the AAFP. “We’re pleased to join a national dialogue that ensures both innovation and affordability of medications. Working together, we can find a solution.”
