Collaboration between industry, healthcare professionals and healthcare organisations is vital. It enables the development and effective use of new medicines and helps to shape the future of research.
The healthcare professionals, healthcare organisations and patient associations we work with at Sanofi all provide us with valuable, independent and expert knowledge derived from their clinical and disease management experience. Collaborating with experts contributes significantly to our efforts to improve the quality of patient care.
At Sanofi we also recognise the need to be transparent when it comes to how we work with healthcare professionals, healthcare organisations and patient associations. As a member of Medicines Australia, we publish regular reports outlining all transfers of value to these groups.
Our transfer of value reports are published in accordance with the Medicines Australia Code of Conduct, Edition 19 and Australia’s Privacy Legislation.
Reports include payments of honoraria or consultancy for services provided, air travel, accommodation or registration fees paid on behalf of an Australian healthcare professional. They also include the healthcare professional’s name, address, specialty, and the nature and dollar value of the transfer of value.
This information is held in a database, administered by Medicines Australia.
