Health Committee MEPs back plans to boost joint assessment of medicines

 

On 13 September 2018, MEPs of the Health Committee adopted a new law that aims at boosting cooperation between member states in the field of HTA, by «laying out the procedure for member states to carry out voluntary joint assessments». It is intended to cover aspects such as rules for sharing data, setting up coordination groups, avoiding conflicts of interest among experts, and publishing the results of the joint work.

The new plan is expected to be voted by the full house at the plenary session in Strasbourg on 1-4 October.
