The EDQM is pleased to announce that the European Paediatric Formulary is now available free of charge on a dedicated online platform. This is a major achievement for the PaedForm Working Party and all the stakeholders involved, since it not only embodies several years’ work and dedication to the project, but feeds into the fundamental human right of equal access to quality healthcare.
Launched by the European Committee on Pharmaceuticals and Pharmaceutical Care (CD-P-PH) and the European Pharmacopoeia Commission, the European Paediatric Formulary project is carried out by experts of a dedicated working party. The aim is to bring together, for the first time, formulations of appropriate quality from all around Europe to allow pharmacists and clinicians to prepare paediatric treatments when no licensed alternative is available.
The formulary can be accessed free of charge by creating an account.
Interested parties wishing to propose an item for inclusion or to become involved in the work on the formulary are invited to contact the EDQM HelpDesk.
