European Association of Euro-Pharmaceutical Companies

Medicines shortages in Europe have attracted significant political and media attention in recent years. Some of the blame has recently been put on parallel distribution, for some aneasy scapegoat for shortages. This is why the EAEPC has published its own contribution to the birgli report, as it wishes to clarify the position of parallel distributors in the shortages debate, address some of the misconceptions generally associated with the activity and put the report, and its findings, into the wider context of the whole pharmaceutical market.
