MOHAP UAE/DHA Nurse Assistant

Full Time

Axios

Axios was formed by a group of health experts who shared the vision of an organization that could work effectively with patients, and private and public sector stakeholders to improve access to healthcare in developing countries and emerging markets. In 1997, following the pioneering efforts of its founders in launching one of the first antiretroviral (ARV) access programs as part of the UNAIDS Drug Access Initiative – which proved that ARTs could be delivered safely and effectively in low-income settings and paved the way for subsequent price reductions – Axios International was created, followed by the Axios Foundation in 2000. Today, Axios continues to break new ground in the design and implementation of market access solutions across Africa, Asia, Latin America, Middle East and Europe.
