Axios Celebrates 25 Years

2022 marks 25 years of Transforming Access to Quality Care and Treatment

Our History

Axios was formed in 1997 by an entrepreneurial group of health experts who believed that patients deserved better. They shared a unique vision of an organization that would bring the distinct needs of the private and public sectors together to transform conventional access to healthcare models. And that’s exactly what we did.

At the peak of the HIV/AIDS pandemic, Axios founders designed and launched an unprecedented antiretroviral (ARV) access program at a time when access to quality medications in developing countries was unheard-of. Soon after, we launched the world’s first access programs for cancer medications.

Our early programs gave millions of patients access to critical, life-saving medications and opened the world’s eyes to the feasibility of alternative, more effective access models. 25 years later, Axios continues to break new ground in the design and implementation of access to healthcare solutions across Africa, Asia, Latin America, Middle East and Europe.

The Future of Access

There remains much uncharted territory to navigate and new opportunities to explore to improve patient access. As we look ahead to the next 25 years, we felt it was important to ensure that our brand reflected our learnings from the past two decades and served as a guide for the road ahead. That is why today Axios unveils a new logo. The globe in our new logo represents what we feel is needed to continue to improve access to healthcare for patients all around the world: Access is not a one-off solution. Sustainable access is multi-dimensional and built by addressing the needs of all involved stakeholders. The globe in our new logo represents the building blocks of sustainable access solutions.

Sustainable access solutions must:

  • Blue: Support financial sustainability
  • Orange: Drive patient outcomes
  • Green: Enable health system and policy improvements

We look forward to continuing to collaborate with our clients and partners to put quality care and treatment within reach so that all people can achieve better health.
