Conf: Pharmaceuticals and Global Health: Inequalities and Innovation in the 21st Century

Pharmaceuticals and Global Health:
Inequalities and Innovation in the 21st Century

Conference Centre, Bramber House, University of Sussex
19 July 2013
9:30am - 6:30pm
We would like to invite you to attend the one day conference: Pharmaceuticals and Global Health: Inequalities and Innovation in the 21st Century.
This high level, international conference will be held at the University of Sussex Conference Centre in Brighton, UK on 19 July 2013, 9:30am - 6:30pm.

Focus of the event:
Over the last 15 years, widening access to life-saving medicines around the world has been a crucial - if not defining - aspect of global health policy.
What started with a historic movement to make anti-retroviral therapy (ARVs) available to millions of people living with HIV/AIDS in low-income countries,
has rapidly evolved into a much broader model for improving health globally. However, a difficult international economic environment, profound changes
in the global pharmaceutical sector, and a number of recent controversies have cast doubt over the future sustainability of this model for addressing global
health inequalities.
Key questions to be addressed on the day include:
  • What are the key successes of this pharmaceutical model of global health in reducing global health inequalities over the past decade?
  • What challenges have emerged about the efficacy and sustainably of rolling out medical treatments in low-income countries?
  • What are the impacts of these global health initiatives on local communities?
  • And what are the new business models that could deliver innovative medicines for global health in the future?
This interdisciplinary conference brings together experts from the fields of policy, research, the pharmaceutical industry, foundations, journalism, and
non-governmental organisations in order to identify new ways of adapting global health policy to these compounding challenges. There is also the
opportunity to tailor the conference to your own interests by choosing from a range of concurrent panel sessions in the afternoon followed by further
discussion during the networking reception.
