Debate in the plenary of the European Parliament on Access to Medicines
Today late in the evening, around 23.00hrs, the European Parliament will debate in plenary on the possible EU measures to ensure that patients have access to affordable and innovative treatments.
You can watch the debate live at the following link: http://www.europarl.europa.eu/plenary/en/home.html
We are glad the debate comes soon after the event organised by ECPC in January, on inequalities in cancer care. Tomorrow we will post on our website a detailed report on the outcome of the discussions to be held tonight in the European Parliament.
The European Parliament will demand action by the European Commission and member states governments in order to tackle the astronomical prices of some life-saving medicines.
