The BioMed Alliance supports the work of medical societies and the healthcare professionals and researchers that they represent by focussing on other important issues beyond EU policy. One of our main focusses is on Continuing Medical Education, as Medical Societies are key providers of information and continuous training to doctors. The BioMed Alliance has also focussed on other key issues for members including the transition to Open Access, the fight against COVID-19 and societies’ responses to the war in Ukraine.
