Webinar: It's Time to Talk About COVID-19 Prices

This 2020 webinar brought together experts to discuss pricing, the pandemic and providing incentives to encourage continued innovation.

COVID-19 has changed our society – people are suffering, world economies have turned upside down and our life as we know it has changed forever. The treatment for COVID-19, when found, will bring a lot of value to society – but what price are we prepared to pay for this value? How do we make sure innovation in medicine continues to grow after this pandemic is over? And what incentives should society offer for current and future work in keeping us safe? In this webinar, experts who have recently written articles addressing these questions engage in a robust discussion and offer their answers.
