EGGVP becomes Access VetMed

The European Group for Generic Veterinary Products has changed its name to Access VetMed to reflect the core aim of the association which is to increase access to veterinary medicines

Ahead of its 20th anniversary year, the European Group for Generic Veterinary Products (EGGVP) has renewed its name and becomes Access VetMed. With the name change, the association wants to be easily recognised as the voice of the European industry of generic and added-value veterinary medicines while communicating to a wider audience about the many benefits of the generic veterinary medicines to animal health and society at large.

“As an EU industry organisation we want to raise awareness about the generic and added-value veterinary medicines and their beneficial qualities – availability, convenience, compliance, efficacy, safety, and savings – that can be condensed into ACCESS. These features have a significant impact to animal health and well-being, which also directly contributes to human and environmental health,” states Dolores Cainzos, chair of Access VetMed.

“With the name change we also wanted to acknowledge that our members increasingly produce added-value veterinary products that contain improved features, such as a more convenient form, dosage or palatability compared to the originator. This also brings more access to treatments,” Cainzos adds.
