Adrian van den Hoven, Director General, Medicines for Europe

As we celebrate AESGP’s 60th anniversary, we envision a future where self-care and generic medicines synergise for enhanced healthcare access. Self-care offers effective disease management and better well-being at all life stages for all individuals. It complements the generics industry’s mission to provide essential access to patients across Europe and the globe. By combining the strengths of self-care practices and the generic medicines sector, we are paving the way for a future where every individual has access to the care they need, not just for the next 60 years, but for generations to come. As partners in this journey, we remain committed to shaping a healthcare landscape that prioritises inclusivity, accessibility, and sustainability of healthcare systems!
