Launch Event & Signing Ceremony for Consensus Framework for Ethical Collaboration:

20 January 2014,

A joint launch event was hosted in Geneva to introduce and sign the Consensus Framework for Ethical Collaboration between Patients’ Organizations, Healthcare Professionals and the Pharmaceutical Industry. The Consensus Framework is the fruit of a dialogue which began in 2011 and is supported by the International Alliance for Patients’ Organizations (IAPO), International Council of Nurses (ICN), International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations (IFPMA), International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) and the World Medical Association (WMA).

The keynote address was given by Dr. Edward Kelley, Director, Service Delivery and Safety, Health Systems and Innovation Cluster at the World Health Organization, and was followed by statements by senior representatives from IAPO, ICN, IFPMA, FIP, and WMA. The Consensus Framework was formally adopted in a signing ceremony and the floor was then opened for discussions. The speakers stressed the need for collaboration between all partners to ensure quality healthcare delivery and patient safety.
