European Patients’ Forum

European Patients’ Forum

What is it?

On their homepage they boast 'EPF believes that ALL patients, no matter their condition, background or nationality, have a fundamental and legitimate human right of access to information about their health, medical conditions and the availability of treatments including knowledge of the best available management of their disease. It is a question of solidarity, equity and patients' rights.'

Whom do they recieve their funding from?

European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industry Associations
and our good friends, GlaxoSmithKline - see HERE how Glaxo brag about how they fund The European Patients’ Forum:

From GlaxoSmithKline's website

During 2006:

We provided €35,000 as an unrestricted grant to help support their activities.

We gave an additional unrestricted grant of €36,250 to support EPF’s spring conference planned for 2007.

We also gave EPF an honorarium of €500 to support the attendance of the Director General at GSK’s European Health Advisory Board meeting.

No ulterior motive hey?
