On 15 June 2015 in Brussels, the European Haemophilia Consortium (EHC) organised its second Round Table of the year on ‘Tenders and Procurement of Coagulation Factor Concentrates: A European Survey of 38 countries.’ The event was an opportunity to present the findings of the 2014 survey conducted by the EHC on how coagulation factor concentrates (CFCs) are purchased in Europe. The survey also sought to identify to what extent patients and healthcare professionals are involved in the procurement of these medicines. During the event stakeholders such as patients and physicians presented their experience of involvement or non-involvement in the tender process in their countries and how this impacted the outcome of the tender. Participants also heard about considerations to take into account in the procurement of new technologies in haemophilia care and on the changes to the European Union (EU) Public Procurement Directive.
