Blue Circle Voices


In December 2016, IDF held a consultation with the Blue Circle Voices (BCV) network with the objective of establishing the priorities of the network. Some 82 participants from 43 different countries responded to the survey.

The main issue identified by the BCV members was access and affordability of medicines, devices and medical care, followed by education, prevention and finally discrimination.
