Agnès Buzyn – Chairwoman of the Board, National Authority for Health (Haute Autorité de Santé – HAS), France

03.02.2017 / Pharmaboardroom

Agnes BUZYNIn an exclusive interview, Agnès Buzyn, Chairwoman of the Board for the French National Authority for Health (Haute Autorité de Santé – HAS), on her organization’s priorities, the particularities of the French healthcare system, and what can be learned from other countries’ systems.

Your career includes experiences as a doctor, research scientist and professor of medicine. Your appointment in March 2016 as head of the French National Authority for Health (HAS) was deemed “unusual.” What encouraged you to accept this position?

I am indeed a doctor, researcher and professor by background and most of my career was spent as such. I spent a large part of my career as an academic hematologist and clinician at the University Paris Descartes - Necker Hospital. In parallel, in the early 2000s, I was the Director of a research team on tumour immunology at the National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM). It was while I was president of the French National Cancer Institute (INCa) from May 2011 to February 2016 that my interest in public health emerged. During this period at INCa, I gained exposure to public health issues and ever since, my interest in these issues has grown progressively.
