Gabrielle Breugelmans to moderate panel discussion at the WHO Fair Pricing Forum
On Friday 12 April 2019, Gabrielle Breugelmans, Director of Research at the Access to Medicine Foundation, will moderate a panel discussion on emerging pricing approaches and policies at the 2nd WHO Fair Pricing Forum in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The main objective of the Forum is to discuss options for a fairer pricing system that is sustainable for both health systems and research-based and generic pharmaceutical industries. Themes of the Forum include: transparency of pricing, strengthening pricing policies, and cross border collaboration.
Representatives from WHO Member State Governments, patient associations, civil society, insurance companies and the pharmaceutical industry will convene in Johannesburg to exchange experiences and insights towards achieving better access through pricing measures.
The Forum is an initiative of the World Health Organization and is organised in collaboration with the National Department of Health in South Africa.
