European Parliament

The MEPs for CAM Interest Group brings together Members of the European Parliament with a common interest in Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM).

Its aims are:

  • putting and keeping CAM on the EU health policy agenda
  • establishing and maintaining a Forum for discussion and action regarding CAM
  • promoting awareness of CAM and its contribution to creating more sustainable healthcare systems in the EU.

The group is led by Sirpa Pietikäinen MEP.

The group is open to participation and input from CAM stakeholders in order to ensure the relevance of its activities and outputs to CAM practice and CAM use by EU citizens.

The group seeks to organise meetings in the Parliament, which offer the opportunity to enter into active dialogue with relevant policy makers and stakeholders and for the Interest Group to make informed decisions and take action on specific topics relevant to CAM as they arise in the EU agenda.

EUROCAM runs the secretariat of the MEPs for CAM Interest Group.
