In early April, the World Health Organization (WHO) Consultative Expert
Working Group (CEWG) on financing and coordination of R&D released its
final report, “Research and Development to Meet Health Needs in Developing
Countries: Strengthening global financing and coordination.”  The report
provides recommendations to improve global financing for global health
research and development (R&D) that will be further discussed at the
65thWorld Health Assembly (WHA) in May.

In light of the upcoming WHA, the Results for Development Institute,
Georgetown University’s O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health,
and Harvard Global Health Institute will be hosting a public event to
discuss the outcome of the CEWG process and to delve deeper into current
global policy debates on medicines R&D.  John-Arne R*ø*ttingen, CEWG Chair
will present the CEWG findings and recommendations, followed by two panel
discussions with representative of academia, industry, government, and
civil society.

Light lunch will be provided.
