Support to the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the European Union

The Austrian Presidency of the Council of the European Union (July – December 2018) included medicines as one focus topic in the area of health. The Pharmacoeconomics Department provided technical support to the Austrian Federal Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs, Health and Consumer Protection. In support of the Austrian Council Presidency 2018, the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies prepared two Policy Briefs on the topic of access to medicines. An expert of the Pharmacoeconomics Department / WHOCC co-authored one of the briefs titled ‘Ensuring access to medicines: How to redesign pricing, reimbursement and procurement?’ which relates to pharmaceutical pricing, reimbursement and procurement policies.
