betransparent.be is a central and public platform on which premiums and benefits granted by pharmaceutical or medical devices companies to healthcare professionals, healthcare organisations and/or patient organisations are listed in a very clear and simple way. This platform is the result of autoregulation put into place by the companies in close collaboration with several associations of healthcare professionals (physicians, pharmacists, veterinaries, dentists, nurses, physiotherapists, paramedics and hospital technicians), that has grown into a legal obligation.
