CPME believes that the best possible quality of health and access to healthcare should be a reality for everyone, regardless of socio‐economic conditions. Under professional ethics, it is the medical profession’s obligation to serve the patient’s best interest. We advocate access and affordability to evidence-based medicines as a central element of high-quality healthcare. CPME closely cooperates with the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and actively contributes to raising awareness about antimicrobial resistance (AMR) to reduce inappropriate use by changing practices on antimicrobial prescription.
