Independent Voices for Safe & Effective Drugs (IVSED) is a pan-Canadian organization whose members include academics, researchers, healthcare providers and patient and consumer advocates. We have expertise in pharmaceuticals and Canada’s health policies in many disease areas including diabetes, drugs for mental health and sleep problems, dementia-type illnesses, rare diseases, breast cancer, and pediatric health conditions. As individuals with a long history of engagement, research and advocacy in health care, we came together to pool our knowledge and resources to collaborate and build a stronger voice, free of industry influence, for independent and objective solutions for safe, effective and affordable medicines in Canada.
