Collaboration with Nordic Pharmaceutical Forum



To further strengthen the cooperation between the Nordic countries, FINOSE enters a collaboration with the New Expensive Drugs (NED) section of Nordic Pharmaceutical Forum.

The collaboration aims to support joint Nordic negotiations for products assessed through FINOSE, by highlighting points of contact and communication between NED and FINOSE. Joint HTA through FINOSE and joint negotiations with NED are conducted after agreement with the health technology developer.

The possibility of joint HTA and negotiations is offered as a route for suitable products and aims at equal patient access in the Nordic countries. The main steps of the process are outlined below.
