The ZonMw programme Good Use of Pharmaceuticals has intensive contact with the Fair Medicine Foundation, as we consider it to be an important new model for organising the development of pharmaceuticals in a transparent manner in the future. The formation of a coalition and the commitment of the parties in the field, including the patient, the doctor and the producer, can create a completely new dynamic than that associated with the traditional method of pharmaceutical development.

The Fair Medicine Foundation works closely with patient organisations, the pharmaceutical industry and UMCs to create a new model for developing pharmaceuticals based on the principles of fair trade. NFU and the UMCs heartily endorse this initiative, and collaborate in it as much as possible.
