The European celebration of the European Patients' Rights Day - which has reached its 17th edition - will be held at the European Parliament in Brussels on April 26 from 15:00 to 17:00, kindly hosted by MEP Brando Benifei (S&D) and organised by Cittadinanzattiva/Active Citizenship Network with the support of the MEPs Interest Group "European Patients' Rights & Cross-Border Healthcare" and the TRANSFORM MEP Interest Group.
The current narrative related to the European pharmaceutical legislation review seems to be limited to the following statement: “the fate of the pharmaceutical sector is at stake as well as the future of national health systems”. What about the justified expectations of patients? How can innovation and access be combined? To try to answer these questions, the 17th European Patients’ Rights Day will gather inputs from the European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, Members of the European Parliament, the World Health Organization, Patient Advocacy Groups from different countries, independent experts and relevant stakeholders in the field of Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products.
The 2023 conference represents the first in-person European celebration of the European Patients' Rights Day since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic and, to give more people the opportunity to participate, it will be also web-streamed.
The link to the live streaming and the conference agenda will be disseminated in due time.
