Connecting healthcare across the industry and stakeholders to implement the 3Rs

A blog by Kirsty Reid, Director for Science Policy, EFPIA

The pharmaceutical industry is fully committed to the key principles of 3Rs (Reducing the number of animals used, Refining experiments to minimise the impact on animals, and Replacing animal experiments wherever possible with alternatives). We strive to go beyond what is legally required and work to implement 3Rs to ensure high animal welfare and high quality science and ultimately improve the lives of the people and animals that stand to benefit from the research.

Since the adoption of the EU legislation governing animal use, EFPIA and its members have been publishing reports to visibly highlight our actions on putting animal welfare principles and the 3Rs into action. Here we introduce you to our 5th report. Read more
