On October 5, 2020, KEI organized a panel about government funding of
COVID-19 drugs and vaccines at the Global Congress on Intellectual Property
and the Public Interest. Although the full Global Congress event was
postponed to the year 2021, the organizers held a week about COVID-19,
intellectual property, and the public interest. For more information about

The co-panelists were Luis Gil Abinader (KEI), Zain Rizvi (Public Citizen),
