Expanding affordable access to innovative drugs will play a central role in addressing current and future global health challenges. This is particularly critical for low and middle-income economies as they look to reduce disease burdens through innovative medicines and strengthen healthcare delivery. Is there a policy framework that would both incentivise life sciences companies to continue risk-taking investments into the research of transformative cures — and make these cures available to patients who can least afford but most need access to them?

This discussion will seek to brainstorm and rebuild on best practice policies — including the convergence of intellectual property rights, voluntary licensing and strengthening healthcare infrastructure.
