November 22nd we had the great pleasure of being invited as observers to the hybrid meeting of the Patient Think Tank of European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA).

OIFE found the meeting so useful, that we have applied to become a member of the EFPIA Patient Think Tank.

We recommend our member organizations in Europe to be familiar with these documents:
