Reporting under the ABPI Code

Vifor Pharma UK (VPUK) strives to maintain high standards in ethical promotion of its medicines and is fully committed to ensuring the company adheres to the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry’s (ABPI) Code of Practice.

Part of this commitment entails making information about certain activities publicly available. Up until 2016 this information was solely published on this website. With the updated EFPIA requirements and the set-up of the ABPI disclosure portal this has now changed and the only information that VPUK will publish here is support for Patient Organisations and details of any joint working projects. All other information subject to public disclosure (such as payments to Healthcare Professionals and Healthcare Organisations) will be submitted to the ABPI for inclusion on their publicly accessible database. Please see their website for further details.
