Janssen has a strong commitment towards patients and is aware of its corporate role. Our company fulfills this corporate role by focusing on new areas of research and methods of production, in the hope of discovering more medicines and helping to cure disorders.
It is important that we gain a clear insight into all aspects of patients’ needs. This is why Janssen works together with not only doctors and pharmacists but also with patient organizations, which play an important role in the areas of providing information, support and assistance to patients. As a company, we learn from this interaction, and this helps us when it comes to the development of new treatments and the provision of helpful information.
Janssen's aim is to ensure that these relationships and partnerships function in accordance with a number of important principles such as mutual respect and knowledge, integrity, independence and transparency. The Code of Practice on Relationships Between the Pharmaceutical Industry and Patient Organizations, as formulated by the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industry Associations (EFPIA) in cooperation with pan-European patient organizations dates from 2007. Janssen subscribes to the principles of this code.
Sixteen patient organizations in Flanders and Wallonia received support in 2013 in the form of an annual contribution, contributions for participating in conferences, setting up a stand, creating a website, brochure or awareness campaign, and supporting buddy working or excursions for patients. The complete overview of the collaboration projects is published each quarter on www.janssenbelgium.be.
