    Activiteit: Attending an event Academic


    The first day of the meeting will focus on “Reliance and regulatory science”. More and more we are looking for possibilities of work-sharing between different authorities and other stakeholders within the pharmaceutical policy and regulation sector. Interesting initiatives have been undertaken by WHO, national and regional regulatory agencies, e.g. in Sub-Saharan countries or the EU, and by reimbursement and payers (e.g. EUnetHTA). Several invited speakers will present their views on benefits and risks, opportunities and challenges during plenary lectures and there will be ample room for discussions and sharing of experiences. On the second day of the meeting, submitted abstracts will be presented and discussed in the morning and afternoon (oral and poster presentations). Abstracts are not limited to the central theme of the first day; all research in the field of pharmaceutical policy analysis is eligible for submission. The focus of the sessions will be on methods used or proposed. At the end of this day one of the Centre’s PhD students, Daniel Ankrah, will defend his thesis entitled “Pharmaceutical policies and access to medicines - a hospital-pharmacy perspective from Ghana”.
