The current COVID-19 pandemic has shed new light on the challenges around
global availability of medicines. Countries worldwide are looking into
measures to increase supply and secure access, including strengthening
local production of essential medicines. Dr. Gabriela Chaves will present
different approaches to stimulate local production of medicines adopted in
Brazil over three decades, highlighting the connections between health and
industrial policies and drawing lessons learned. Pauline Londeix will
present research findings from a recent report on the potential re-location
of pharmaceutical production at the European Union level and its member
States, including examples of alternative models of production.



The webinar is free and open to the public and will be held in English.
Participants can pose questions orally or in writing, and the speakers will
respond to a selection of these during the second half of the event.
Recordings of all webinars are made available at the Knowledge Portal on
Innovation and Access to Medicines. After registering, you will receive a

using the Zoom platform. This event is part of the webinar series of the
