Eligible patients and consumers organisations

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) engages with a network of over thirty-five eligible organisations, ensuring that the needs and concerns of a wide range of patients and consumers are represented via direct contact with the Agency.

These organisations are not-for-profit, in most cases have a European Union-wide mandate, and include:

  • umbrella organisations encompassing a number of smaller or national organisations;
  • organisations with a focus on a specific area.

Eligible organisations receive targeted EMA communications and consultations and frequently assist in the identification of experts for product-specific matters.

All of the listed organisations have been evaluated and confirmed to fulfil the eligibility criteria for working with EMA. For more information on the eligibility criteria and engaging with EMA representing a patients' or consumers' organisation, see Getting involved.

Please note that becoming an eligible organisation does not automatically grant membership to the Patients' and Consumers' Working Party (PCWP). The process of becoming a member of the PCWP is outlined in its mandate, available on the working party's webpage.
