ESIP with 42 other organisations call for a public health driven Partnership

Together with 42 other organisations representing patients, doctors, HTAs and other public organisations, healthcare payers represented within ESIP express their views on the future European Partnership on Innovative Health. 

In the open letter sent to Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth Maryia Gabriel and Commissioner for Health and Food Safety Stella Kyriakides, healthcare payers underline the need to ensure that public interest remains at the core of the future Partnership. As a considerable amount of public funds will be allocated to health research and innovation projects, it is essential to ensure these investments serve the public interest.

In order to do so, the signatories call urge the European Commission to ensure:

1. Priority Setting driven by public health needs

2. Transparent, balanced and inclusive governance structures

3. Public return on public investment and ensuring equitable access to publicly funded R&I

4. Full transparency on R&I investments

5. Open science

6. Sensitive health policy issues to be discussed in inclusive multi-stakeholder platforms with strong stewardship from public authorities

The signatories welcome the possibility of a meeting with the responsible Commissioners to further discuss the proposals.
