Cross Party Alliance
European Parliament Cross-Party Alliance on PKU
What is the PKU European Parliament Cross Party Alliance?
A Cross Party Alliance is an informal group of Members of the European Parliament (MEP) who represent different political groups, but all are interested in a particular topic: PKU. They hold informal discussions and promote exchanges between MEPs and with experts and the civil society.
Why a PKU Cross Party Alliance?
From food labelling and the assessment and approval of medicines and therapies to cross-border healthcare and European Reference Networks: EU decisions increasingly have an impact on healthcare for people living with PKU and their daily lives.
The European Parliament Cross Party Alliance on PKU aims to make sure that the specific needs of the European PKU community are sufficiently met by EU policies and EU legislation.
