Adapting to Covid-19: Defending the Public Interest in Vaccine and Medical Development

The global health emergency caused by the new coronavirus outbreak should bring countries, international organizations, NGOs, investors and industry together to agree on a new social contract where industry acknowledges it cannot both have and eat the cake: If more public money is going to be spent directly on the development of new products and vaccines, the price of the products has to be closer to the marginal cost of production. Governments then need to keep their end of the bargain and invest in robust health systems to provide prevention, treatment, and care. Drug markets will not fix themselves.

10.00 am to 1.00 pm
