The Cancer Medicines Committee (CMC) was established in 2015 to address the topics related to inexpensive and expensive cancer medicines.
The Cancer Medicines Committee is divided into two working groups:
- Inexpensive, essential cancer medicines: The Working Group is addressing the topic of shortages of essential cancer medicines. It aims to tackle issues related to the adequate supply of inexpensive, essential cancer medicines, the lack of incentives to produce them, and the growing disparities of access to them within Europe and beyond.
- Expensive, innovative cancer medicines: The Working Group is addressing the issue of the sustainability of healthcare systems. It aims to work towards the development of an economic model to tackle issues related to the reimbursement of expensive, innovative medicines.
