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. This webinar will explore issues such as delinage, COVID-19 vaccine accessibility, the limits of patents, and new approaches to both innovation and access of health technologies, so that all people can benefit from the medical advances that have dramatically improved the lives of millions around the world in the last century.
