Hjälp EHA värna patienters tillgång till mediciner!

EHA vill ha hjälp av kliniskt verksamma hematologer att bedöma läget avseende tillgång till nya dyrbara läkemedel i Europa för att kunna agera mot EMEA, EU och andra myndigheter. Din hjälp uppskattas av SFH och våra patienter!

The seemingly growing unavailability of hematology medicines is of great concern to EHA. Incidental reports and a survey we conducted amongst the National Societies indicate that problems regarding unavailability of haematology medicines in Europe are considerable and growing. 17 out of the 35 countries said they regard unavailability of medicines to be a problem in their country and out of these 17 countries, 12 indicated that the problem has got worse in the last 5 years. We believe these insights call for a better, more thorough understanding of the type, causes and consequences of the specific problems that different countries face.

To gather the necessary data we have developed a website survey where doctors, patients and healthcare professionals can report unavailability of medicines. Over the course of (at least) the following months, we will collect and analyse these reports so that we can develop a coherent picture of the scope, causes and consequences of these problems in Europe.

Kind regards,
Nina Straathof, European Affairs, EHA
