Welcome to the ATOME website

The Access to Opioid Medication in Europe (ATOME) project engages a new consortium of academic institutions and public health organizations in working to help European governments identify and remove barriers that prevent people from accessing medicines that could improve end of life care, alleviate debilitating pain and treat heroin dependence.

With funding from the European Commission's 7th Framework Programme, ten ATOME partners have committed to work with their respective country teams, in addition to government officials, public health and medicine experts from within these countries to conduct legislative and policy reviews.

The outcome of these reviews will lead to recommendations that will facilitate access for all patients requiring treatment with medicines controlled under international drug conventions.

The twelve target countries of the Atome project are:
