Pharmaceutical R&D: What Do Neglected Diseases Suggest about Costs and
There is growing interest in alternate "business models" of R&D as
potential solutions to some of the shortcomings of the current R&D system
-- namely, high prices, unmet innovation needs in certain areas, and
limited availability. There has been significant experimentation in
alternate business models for neglected diseases (ND) with the creation of
over 20 Product Development Partnerships (PDPs) and about two decades of
experience now available. PDPs have demonstrated the feasibility of
developing new medicines through non-commercial approaches, but
understanding has been limited of how they compare to commercial R&D.
Marcela Vieira will present a recently published study analyzing data on
the costs and efficiency of PDPs compared to estimates from commercial R&D,
and exploring similarities and differences between the two business models.
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
confirmation email with additional information on how to join the webinar using
the Zoom platform. This event is part of the webinar series of the
Knowledge Network for Innovation and Access to Medicines, a project of the
Global Health Centre at the Graduate Institute, Geneva.
