It is important for patients, industry and charities and patient organisations that we work in an open and mutually beneficial way. The ABPI is committed to this.
The ABPI has produced this sourcebook to support pharmaceutical companies in working successfully and collaboratively with patients and patient organisations. We want to support relationships that are in the interests of patients and within the law and the ABPI Code. We also hope that the sourcebook will be helpful to patient organisations as they build partnerships with industry.
The ABPI works with medical research charities and patient organisations to inform and shape our policies, encourage greater industry and charity collaboration and hosts the Patient Organisation Forum to facilitate joint working and networking.
Charities and Industry work together in a number of ways to develop and deliver more impactful medicines to patients. It’s important that this work is open and mutually beneficial. The ABPI supports this through the ABPI Code, Guidance and tools to do so.
