Health Action International’s (HAI) work in Europe aims at contributing to EU policy that promotes universal and equitable access to affordable medicines for needed treatment. HAI also supports policy and practice that ensures those medicines respond to societal challenges, are acceptably safe, appropriately prescribed and used. Through its European network, we bring independent patient and consumer voice in decisions that will affect their health whilst advocating for high levels of transparency, accountability and impartiality in all aspects of EU medicines policy. HAI’s European work plan 2016 is dedicated to identify, monitor and support EU policies that provide a response to persistent shortfalls in access to needed medicines and that are aligned with HAI’s overarching goals on Access to Needed Medicines, Rational Use of Medicines and Democratisation of Medicines Policy projects. HAI will work towards these goals through evidence-based policy analysis and intervention, training and information sharing. HAI’s work plan addresses the objectives of the Third Health Programme and contributes to EU added-value by supporting initiatives that have the potential to maximise the impact of policy intervention at a regional level, contributing to better and safer healthcare for all in Europe.
HAI is a non-profit, independent, NGO and maintains a European membership network of consumer groups, healthcare professionals, academics and public interest NGOs. The growing European regional network is represented in over half of European Union Member States. The HAI European office coordinates actions in collaboration with the HAI Europe Association and European civil society organisations.
