3rd EURORDIS Multi-Stakeholder Symposium on Improving Patients’ Access to Rare Disease Therapies


Let’s make a pact to ensure patients’ sustainable access to rare disease therapies

13-14 February 2019 
Crowne Plaza Brussels – Le Palace, Rue Gineste 3, 1210 Brussels, Belgium
Metro Station: Rogier

Over 250 people gathered at this event, including rare disease patients, patient advocates, healthcare industry, consultants, investors, ERN clinical representatives, academia, healthcare professionals, researchers, payer bodies, HTA agencies, National Competent Authorities, regulators, policy makers, and government workers.

Some of the important take-home messages include the recognition that multi-stakeholder collaboration is a fundamental condition to achieving patient access to rare disease medicines; that there is a need for a more trusted and transparent cooperation between payers and companies; and that the expectations for the European Reference Networks (ERNs) to be an important facilitator in evidence generation building is also an area of high interest that will be monitored closely over the coming years.

EURORDIS-Rare Diseases Europe is now gathering the input developed in the plenary and breakout sessions and will include them in the outcomes document as a roadmap for all parties to collaborate in a process to improve patients’ access to rare disease medicines. The final version of the roadmap document will be shared in April 2019.
