Who are we ?
We are the voice of European Self-Care Industry
The Association of the European Self-Care Industry (AESGP) is a non-profit organisation representing the manufacturers of non-prescription medicines, food supplements and self-care medical devices in Europe, also referred to as consumer healthcare products. Our mission is to advance responsible self-care and contribute to the sustainability of European healthcare systems.About us
We empower self-care in Europe
The use of medicines available without prescription (OTCs) as well as other self-care products such as food supplements, including minerals & vitamins, and/or self-care medical devices, is an important part of the self-care continuum. It is also in line with the growing desire of everybody to take more responsibility for their own health.
Self-care represents a significant push towards new and greater self-efficacy, autonomy and engagement in health for people. They become increasingly active participants in the management of their health and well-being, and have the right to a greater choice of interventions that meets their needs across their lifetime. Self-care interventions are complementary to conventional healthcare and form an important part of the health system.About self-care
