This programme mainly focuses on five objectives: • Improving the information for chronic patients and streamlining of administrative procedures to improve the access to the existing benefits and measures; • Alleviating the financial burden for the chronically ill through a series of regulatory measures; • Improving the day-to-day situation in terms of access to and quality of care for a long list of disease-specific target groups;. • Addressing the needs of patients with rare diseases; • Initiating the setup of the Observatory for Chronic Diseases. This position paper also mentions financial accessibility, administrative simplification and rare diseases but it will not go too closely into these matters as they have been addressed in the above mentioned plan
