Evidence for Impact

December 14, 2022


Measuring the health and economic impact of 20 years of R&D investment for neglected diseases and emerging infectious diseases

More than US$60 billion was invested in R&D for neglected and emerging infectious diseases over the past 20 years. To understand the health and economic impact of these investments, we must identify and prioritize measures and indicators that assess the impact of new products and technologies. Join us on December 14th to discuss possible approaches to this challenge.

This official side event will provide a critical opportunity for the community to discuss progress across the innovation lifecycle, from product development to access to new medicines, and articulate the broad impact of R&D investment.

Date: Wednesday 14th December
