On Tuesday, the European Council reached an agreement on a proposal for a set of rules which will beef up the role of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) in crisis preparation and management for medicinal drugs and medical equipment, according to an EC press release.
"Although covid-19 is still taking its toll, we need to be better prepared for when another health crisis strikes. A stronger European Medicines Agency will play a key role in this. It will help us to prevent shortages of critical medicines and medical devices and be faster in developing medicines to fight any disease causing a crisis," states Portugal Minister for Health Marta Temido.
