Iceberg Report 2.0

Iceberg Report 2.0

In August 2017, The Medical Research Charities Group (MRCG) and the Irish Platform for Patient Organisations, Science & Industry published what is commonly referred to as the ‘Drug Iceberg’report, based on discussions from a round-table of Irish patient organisations on 14 June 2017.

This report provides an update on the original report, including a number of important developments since the first publication and the outcomes of a multi-stakeholder round-table on 18 October 2017.

Both reports aim to provide an on-going, constructive contribution to the debate on access to new and innovative drug therapies* in Ireland, while recognising the challenges of cost and affordability.
