Drug Pricing Policies in the United States and Globally

From Development to Delivery

Join us for a one-day conference exploring the current pharmaceutical pricing landscape. This event will bring together leaders from the pharmaceutical industry, policymakers, legal practitioners, and scholars to engage in novel, interdisciplinary discussions to better understand current challenges and articulate best practices to address these issues. Participants will assess the current challenges presented in drug pricing policy, from development to delivery, in both the United States and international context. We will also explore and articulate best practices to expand access to medicines and develop a plan for disseminating these practices more widely.

This event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited and registration is required. Register now!

Sponsored by the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics at Harvard Law School and Global Access in Action at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University.
