MSM #3 - Feb 21st 2023

A 3rd c4c Multistakeholder Meeting (MSM) was held on 21 February in Berlin; the topic was medical devices for children with Type 1 diabetes. The aim of the meeting was to define the unmet medical needs, understand the regulatory environment in the EU and US and learn about the challenges faced by industry when developing devices for children. The strategic discussion identified actions to promote access to medical devices for all children of all ages. MSMs are designed to facilitate discussion and interaction among relevant stakeholders on the development of medicines in the best interest of children and adolescents. More details of the outcome of this MSM will soon be available on the c4c website.
