Autumn Meeting and EP Lunch Reception

Brussels, Belgium, 12 November 2015

Our conference on "Remunerating pathways for medicines access" sought to take a holistic look at remuneration models and to assess ways in which they can be balanced with the need to ensure access to all medicines. The conference was followed by a Lunch Reception at the European Parliament that centered around the topic "Ensuring safety and quality of medicines access in Europe". Mr. Giovanni La Via, Chairman of the European Parliament's Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety and Ms. Julie Girling, Member of the European Parliament's Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety hosted the event.
