At Chiesi, it is important to have a continuous dialogue and collaboration with patient organizations in the therapy areas we work in. Our goal is to support patients by promoting sustainable access to care.
To succeed with this:
- We listen and try to understand the patients’, and their relatives', disease journey.
- We engage in a broad dialogue, beyond treatment, to increase awareness, diagnosis, access and support.
- We include the patient's voice in the development process
- We support the patient throughout his/her disease journey
In order to show that patient organizations work independently and that Chiesi does not control their guidelines for professional and interest-political views, it is important to be transparent about our collaborations.
EFPIA (European Association of Pharmaceutical Industry Associations) and ENLI (Ethical Board for the Pharmaceutical Industry) have decided that support for patient organizations will be published on the company's website. The publication must contain a short project description so that the meaning and scope can be understood. In addition, the total costs must be stated.
Our agreements with patient organizations have a clause on transparency.
