An open letter in response to the GHA/CEO report on IMI
At IMI, we are always open to justified, balanced, and constructive criticism. We therefore read the report of Corporate Europe Observatory and Global Health Advocates with great interest. Although there are some valid points in the report, we regret the fact that the the authors target isolated challenges that IMI has faced and turn them into generalities in order to dismantle the integrity of the programme. IMI Executive Director Pierre Meulien highlights three of these in an open response to the report.
