French health reform bill to address drug shortages, clinical trials

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

The French parliament is preparing to examine a bill reforming the healthcare system as part of the national health strategy launched by the government in 2013. While the main thrust of the draft "Health Law" is to iron out inequalities and inefficiencies in the healthcare system, it includes proposals to avoid shortages of high therapeutic value medicines and to bring French legislation into line with the new EU Clinical Trials Regulation.
