Dalli EU lead in health and DG Sanco gets responsability for pharma

John Dalli from Malta will be in charge of Health and Consumer Policy in the new Barrosso commission. At the same time the reponsability for pharmaceuticals is being moved to DG Sanco. Mr Dalli who today is Social Policy Minister has a background both in industry as well as in consultancy and should be well equiped to manage the change in responsability. Its going to be very interesting to see what this will mean formost for the patient information proposal - maybe some of the tension around the issue can be eased with this transfer since DG Sanco now has to take responsability for the dossier instead of viewing their role only to safeguarde the safety of the patients and consumers.

  1. It is a pity that something like that will happen to those pharmacies. I hope that something can be done avoid that things.
