IAPO releases results of new survey on patient perceptions of healthcare - What patients really want

IAPO has released the results of a new large scale survey on perceptions of healthcare among patients' organization members in 10 EU Member States, Canada and Nigeria.  The survey results demonstrate strongly shared views on the needs and concerns of patient group members related to currently administered healthcare and signal a need for a shift to a more patient-centred approach.  Jo Harkness presented some of these results, along with information on IAPO activities and approach to increasing access to health, at the international conference, Geneva Forum: Towards Global Access to Health, on Wednesday 30 August, 2006 in Geneva Switzerland during a session entitled, 'Civil society: a key partner to improve access to health'.  A press release, fact sheet, short report and the presentation can all be accessed. 

IAPO Update on Biosimilar Medicines:

We are delighted to inform you of the progress in developing IAPO's Briefing Paper on Biosimilar Medicines.  It is currently being printed and will soon be launched. The paper is designed to provide information on this topic to patients' organizations and gives a comprehensive overview of the issues related to the introduction of Biosimilar medicines. As part of our commitment to providing independent information we will be disseminating the paper free of charge to patients' organizations.
