How can we ensure fair access to medicines in the 21st century?

About this Event

Approximately 1 in 3 people around the world lack access to essential medicines and this figure rises to 1 in 2 in Sub-Saharan Africa. This problem arises as the current biomedical Research and Development (R&D) system serves profits over people. Patents can be used to both enable and inhibit public access to novel medical technologies. Technologies such as vaccines could positively impact the quality of life of millions around the world. How can patents empower low income communities by increasing accessibility to novel life-enhancing technology? This webinar will explore how science, innovation, and policy can help make healthcare more accessible on a global scale.
