The Rethinking Regulation Program at KIE is hosting its Annual Symposium May 22. This year’s conference is spearheaded by 2016-17 Lamb Regulatory Fellow Vishy Pingali, focusing on regulation and access to pharmaceuticals in the developing world. Discussion will center on the 2016 report of the UN Commission on Human Rights on Access to Medicines. Governments in developing economies often grapple with the absence of mature insurance markets, so patients often pay for medication out of pocket. Expensive, novel medicines are then out of reach for the majority of the population. Can these governments develop a regulatory regime that facilitates payment for these prescriptions?
