Parliamentary questions
PDF 29kWORD 14k
27 November 2019
 E-002981/2019
Answer given by Mr Andriukaitis
on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-002981/2019

The Commission is aware of the problem of shortages of essential medicinal products and its negative impact on the European patients.

The Commission is following closely the issue and Member States’ and European Medicines Agency initiatives addressing this problem. The reasons of the shortages are diverse, and vary from the manufacturing issues to the commercial decisions of pharmaceutical industry.

The current Commission is not in a position to answer questions related to the mandate of its successor and invites the Honourable Member of the European Parliament to address the question to the next Commission once it takes office.
