PLUS meets EU Health Commissioner John Dalli
Brian O’Mahony and Johan Prévot met on behalf of PLUS’ Executive Committee with EU Health and Consumer Policy Commissioner John Dalli at the European Commission in Brussels on 13 October 2011. The meeting’s main items for discussion were the outcomes of the PLUS 2011 Dublin Consensus meeting and the last Blood Directive report. The EU Commission was invited to attend the 2012 PLUS meeting as observers. Other topics discussed included the inclusion of patient groups in Health Technology Assessment processes in relation to the EU Cross-Border Directive, EU newborn screening policies, orphan drugs market access and MSM donor deferral policies. The Commissioner took great interest in these issues which the Commission will follow up on and re-emphasized the commitment of the European Commission to continue this consultation process with PLUS in the future.
