While branded DTC advertising is banned in Europe, over the past few years, bodies including the EC (European Commission), European Council and Council of Ministers have been softening their approach towards the pharmaceutical industry. Although the effort to relax the DTC advertising ban in 2002 for diseases such as AIDS, diabetes and asthma failed under public pressure, the recent proposal by the EC to allow restricted DTC advertising brings a new hope to the industry. In January 2008, the EC proposed to allow pharmaceutical companies to provide “objective” and non-promotional information to patients about their drugs in newspapers and websites. However, the proposal has already received resistance from various consumer advocacy groups across Europe expressing concern regarding the credibility of the pharmaceutical industry to provide clear and unbiased information about the drugs. There is also concern regarding the unclear definition of the term “objective information” which could be misused by the pharmaceutical industry.
Thus, although the proposal would take some years to get legislated, it is expected to bring better prospects for the European pharmaceutical industry, if implemented.
