There is growing evidence about how corruption in the pharmaceutical system creates inequitable barriers to access to medicines through wastage, diversion, and exclusion. The pharmaceutical system is particularly prone to corruption given that it is a complex system with multiple decision points and stakeholders, and it is characterized by many market and government failures. As the global community seeks to reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including achieving SDG #3 – Good Health and Well-being, addressing corruption in the pharmaceutical system is essential. The COVID-19 pandemic has also shown how corruption threatens equity of access to health services and products.
The Summer Institute: Advancing Anti-Corruption, Accountability and Transparency in the Global Pharmaceutical System provides a unique opportunity to learn from an array of multidisciplinary global experts in areas related to corruption risks in the pharmaceutical system. Attendees will also have the opportunity to apply their learning by working on case studies in small groups.
Who Should Attend?
Researchers, policy makers and any students interested in learning about how to identify and manage corruption risks related to the pharmaceutical system. No prior knowledge or experience on this topic is required.
3 hours each day – May 10th, May 11th, and May 12th, 2021. Each session is from 9AM-12PM EST.
