The Nobody Left Outside (NLO) initiative was created in 2017 when MSD reached out to NGOs representing the most marginalised communities in Europe including people experiencing homelessness, LGTBI people, people who use drugs, prisoners, sex workers and undocumented migrants. Since then, the NLO coalition has been showing great efforts to raise awareness of the challenges marginalised communities face in access to healthcare.

These efforts materialise through various activities such as conferences, articles, exhibitions, proposals and reports to World Health Organisation and the EU institutions.

Today, the NLO coalition is recognised as a single voice for the most marginalised and stigmatised communities through open dialogues with EU institutions and major health organisations.

Boris Azaïs, the Director of Public Policy Europe for MSD shares NLO’s journey on this blogpost for the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA).
