National Medicines Information Network

Medicines Information Network

The national Medicines Information Network (or the Medicines Information Network) produces and shares reliable medicines information, promotes cooperation between different actors in the pharmaceutical sector, and brings the representatives of medicine users into joint discussions to share their daily experiences of medicines information.

The Medicines Information Network is led by Fimea, supported by a coordination group set up by Fimea. The Medicines Information Network was established in 2012 and renewed for the period 2021-2026. The network bases its activities on the updated National Medicines Information Strategy titled The Medicine User at the Centre of Medicines Information – National Medicines Information Strategy 2021–2026 (, in Finnish, Abstract in English).

The Medicines Information Network has the following working groups that base their work on the goals of the National Medicines Information Strategy:
