Under AdvaMed’s joint leadership with ANDI-CDMIS (Colombia) and CCL-COMSALUD (Peru), principals from medical technology enterprises and associations, governments, and other stakeholders from across the Americas gathered in Lima on 7 September 2016 to examine new opportunities for heightened regional collaboration in strengthening ethical business practices. The roundtable unanimously recommended the establishment of an Inter-American Coalition on Ethical Practices in the Medical Technology Sector, bringing together all relevant stakeholders under a common set of principles and a joint work plan through 2020. The Inter-American Coalition on Ethical Practices in the Medical Technology Sector was launched during the February 2017 Latin American Compliance Conference, bringing together 15 national medical technology manufacturer and distributor associations under common terms to prepare a set of principles and a joint work plan that strengthens ethical business practices across the western hemisphere. With members to include government, health care professional and civil society organizations, the Coalition serves as the first public-private partnership spanning the entire region to strengthen ethical business practices in the medical technology sector.
