EUROPEAN PATIENTS’ RIGHTS DAY 2017

Active Citizenship Network will celebrate the 11th European Patients’ Rights Day with a multi-stakeholder conference, to be held on 10 May 2017 in Brussels.

The aim of the convention is to discuss, inform and suggest new approaches to the existing European and national medicines regulatory systems, for better management of access to innovation. Indeed, the access to innovative therapies strongly contributes to define the quality of life of patients and the quality of healthcare services provided, respecting the fundamental values recognised by the European Charter of Patients’ Rights. The event will be an occasion to inform, discuss and take commitments to improve the respect of patients’ rights and their involvement in the policy-making and regulatory processes at national and European level.
