EPF’s vision is high quality, patient-centred, equitable healthcare for all patients throughout the European Union.
EPF facilitates exchange of good practice and challenging of bad practices on patients’ rights, equitable access to treatment and care, and health-related quality of life between patient organisations at European level and at Member state level.
