Global Health Policy

Global Health Policy Picture

Through our advocacy efforts, technical expertise, and holistic approach, MedTech Europe actively engages on many international issues of relevance for the medical technology sector.

These include:

  • Market access: we advocate attractive funding, pricing, and reimbursement policies to help medical technologies reach international markets
  • Trade issues: we seek fair business terms in international territories, with fewer tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade in medical devices and IVDs
  • Regulatory issues: we promote regulatory reforms that are in line with international norms, avoiding unnecessary delays in patient access to innovative technologies
  • International health policies: we work with agencies including the World Health Organisation (WHO) to help develop clear, common guidelines for the use of medical technologies
  • Ethical conduct: we promote and help to implement the principles of ethical business practices across the world.
