Specialist on HTA and patient access

Anne-Pierre Pickaert

Anne-Pierre joined the Patvocates team as expert on health technology assessment and patient access. Anne-Pierre brings 20+ years of experience with a wide range of healthcare stakeholders (charity, patient organisation, governmental agency, consultancy and pharmaceutical industry).

Her skills and expertise in health communication, cancer prevention and market access, combined with her personal experience as a leukaemia survivor, give her a unique perspective on patient engagement, advocacy and equal access to adequate care.


Anne-Pierre holds a MSc in Economic Evaluation for Health Technology Assessment from the University of York, a MSc in European Social Policy from the London School of Economics and a Diploma in Political Sciences from the Institut d’Etudes Politiques of Strasbourg. She most notably worked as general delegate and program manager in cancer prevention through nutrition and lifestyle (World Cancer Research Fund & Institut National du Cancer [INCa]) and market access director (Kantar Health, Lundbeck & Sanofi).

Upon her own diagnosis Anne-Pierre realized how much her health care background was of great help to navigate through the complexities of a patient journey. She felt the need to volunteer for patient organisations and scientific projects to support and influence future patient care (Association Laurette Fugain, Entraide aux Greffés de Moelle Osseuse [EGMOS], Cancéropôle Ile de France & HTC project).

In order to have a greater impact on patient access to care, she joined the Patvocates team. Anne-Pierre also founded Care4Access, a consultancy dedicated to patient engagement and advocacy.
