The Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) and
National Voices have jointly produced a guide to collaboration between pharmaceutical companies and charities.
The guide aims to promote transparency and accountability in collaborative working and to serve as a practical 'how to' guide for all parties. Led by a steering group, the project held two workshops to consult stakeholders and help shape the guide.
More information on the development and purpose of the guide is available in the guide itself. A blog from Harry Cayton, Chief Executive of the Professional Standards Authority and Chair of the guide's Steering Group, has also been published on this website.
