This framework - based on four main principles - is designed to help healthcare stakeholders work together to deliver high quality patient care.

Working with others

IAPO, with the International Council of Nurses (ICN), International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations (IFPMA), International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP), and the World Medical Association (WMA) have established a Consensus Framework for Ethical Collaboration to support partnerships that will aim to deliver greater patient benefits and support high quality patient care.

Derived from the individual codes of ethical practice and health policy positions of the five supporting organizations, this framework is based on four overarching principles:

  • Putting patients first
  • Supporting ethical research and innovation
  • Ensuring independence and ethical conduct
  • Promoting transparency and accountability
