Access to medicines accountability project

The high price of medicines: towards accountability of the industry

Together with a group of attorneys, Prof Brigit Toebes is engaged in a project investigating the legal questions surrounding the (high) price of medicines and the responsibilities of manufacturers in this regard. This ties in with the current debate in society about the unacceptability of high drug prices and the potential societal responsibility of the pharmaceutical industry. The research involves EU competition law, tort law and human rights law and it investigates whether the high price of the drug concerned violates these legal standards. For more information please contact Prof Brigit Toebes or Jan-Koen Sluijs (Coupry).

Further information can be found on the Dutch Foundation Stichting Farma ter Verantwoording.

The project also facilitates a law clinic for students. Students interested in this project can contact Prof Brigit Toebes at b.c.a.toebes@rug.nl .
