Patient organisation collaboration

Pharmaceutical companies are obliged to provide an annual summary of the forms of collaboration pursued with patient organisations on their internet websites. Our annual summaries comprise all those countries where an Orion Pharma marketing organisation is present.

 

We support patient organisations with their socially important role in providing information and mental support, arranging rehabilitation and bringing patients and their families together with peers to share experience and advice. Annual summaries of our patient organisation collaboration in Europe are publicly available on our website. These reports show details of the various forms of support such as sponsorship for covering costs of educational events or production of information material about a disease, for example. The decisions concerning support to patient organisations are made by our pharmaceutical marketing organisations within their budget limits.

European pharmaceutical companies are committed to following the EFPIA Codes of Practice concerning marketing of pharmaceuticals. These codes and national codes derived from them are accessible via EFPIA's website at http://www.efpia-e4ethics.eu/

Particular practices concerning collaboration with patient organisations are determined in the ethical guidelines. For transparency in these relationships, pharmaceutical companies are obliged to publish an annual summary of their collaboration with patient organisations on their internet websites.
