Focus on Transparency
EFPIA is the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations. The EFPIA Disclosure Code is a code of conduct – based on a voluntary agreement of the association – that requires all EFPIA member companies and companies that are members of EFPIA member associations to disclose transfers of value to healthcare professionals (HCPs) and healthcare organisations (HCOs). As a member of the EFPIA, Boehringer Ingelheim will accordingly disclose relevant payments under the Transparency Code.
Alberto Ros Morte, Head of Marketing Prescription Medicines Europe, explains why transparency is so important for pharmaceutical companies and for the benefit of the patients.
