02: No Security without Research: On the Patients Right to Medical Advances

-
Liechtenstein-Saal
Breakout / Working Group
German and English language

In the community of solidarity in which we live in the West, certainty and security are the mainstays of a modern health policy. But what if economic constraints were such that the certainty that each patient is entitled to the best medical care available was no longer a given? Do patients have a right to medical progress? Or has such progress now become a luxury? Moreover, what can  and must  politics do to ensure that research into and the development of modern pharmaceuticals do not come to a standstill? The working party of the Forum of Research-Based Pharmaceutical Industry (FOPI) attempts to find answers to these major issues.
