The signatories of the Formindep Charter consider that health professionals have from society a mission to act in the sole interest of human beings, taken as individuals and as a community. Pursuing this aim they must seek to act with total independence, protecting themselves from influences which could damage this mission, in particular special interests of an industrial, commercial or financial nature.
Under social control and with the help of the relevant authorities, health professionals have the duty to act to identify and expose such interests and refuse their influence in all fields of their activity : research, training, healthcare, prevention and information.
As signatory of the Charter, I call for an end to such influences in the health care area. I support citizens acting to this end, such as those who have joined Formindep to act in the sectors of health education and information.
