In this podcast created by Medicines for Europe, the presenter informally discusses a key topic related to off-patent medicines with two or more experts, focusing on generics, biosimilar and value added medicines.
The second episode of Conversations on EU Pharma will focus on equitable access to medicines for patients and how the path to timely access to treatment can be challenging.
With a focus on Central and Eastern Europe and the consequences of the pandemic on healthcare systems, our host and honourable speakers exchange their views on thoughtful policy reforms to ensure equitable access to medicines for all patients across Europe.
In this episode, our guests are Radu Costin Gănescu, President of COPAC (National Coalition of Organisations for Patients with Chronic Conditions of Romania) and Treasurer of the EPF Board (European Patients’ Forum) and Vera Pataki, Head of International Market Access, Egis and Chair of the CEE Network at Medicines for Europe.
Our host is Adrian van den Hoven, Director General at Medicines for Europe.
