Campania Region: Memorandum of Understanding with the Farmindustria Association
Strengthening public-private partnerships to increase the attractiveness of investments in the Region; speeding up the start-up of clinical trials; training young people to promote employment; and training health workers and associations to promote proximity of care.
The President of the Campania Region, Vincenzo De Luca, and the President of Farmindustria, Marcello Cattani, signed a Memorandum of Understanding in Naples – at the Campania Regional Government Building – to promote collaboration and achieve various objectives together.
Such as, for example, improving appropriateness and adherence to treatment; ensuring uniform access to therapies throughout the Region; strengthening public-private partnerships to increase the attractiveness of investments in the Region; speeding up the start-up of clinical trials; training young people to promote employment; and training health workers and associations to promote proximity of care. It all appears in an official post on Farmindustria’s Instagram.
“This morning in the Region we signed an important memorandum of understanding with Farmindustria that will allow our healthcare to take a further step forward from the point of view of the appropriateness of care, assistance to patients, especially the most fragile ones, and research, a sector in which we have invested so much in recent years.” Campania Regional President Vincenzo De Luca affirmed on social media.
“This memorandum of understanding,” explained De Luca, “represents a unicum at this time in Italy, a model for other regions to follow, because it paves the way for improving the public health service. Campania has become the first region in Italy in the speed of payment for medicines, thanks to the work we have done in recent years. Today, thanks to the agreement with Farmindustria, we are truly pleased to be able to mark this further achievement, which propels us towards other ambitious goals, first and foremost the forthcoming creation of a regional drug platform”.
“We would like to thank the President of the Campania Region, Vincenzo De Luca, for signing this important Protocol, the first with a Region, which is a sign of a very concrete and pragmatic willingness to work together on research, training, industrial growth and skills at a time of incredible scientific innovation. Campania represents a country of excellence in many areas of medicine and research and has a political vision that is attentive to innovation. And thanks to the pharmaceutical industry, a true value of the territory and the economy, with the signing of the protocol, this partnership will be further strengthened,” Cattani commented.
