Pharmaceutical Industry and Health

Beatriz González López-Valcárcel y Vicente Ortún entrevistados por Antonio San José e Íñigo Alfonso

The Burning Issue

The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most economically lucrative sectors and consequently it is not exempt from conflicts between commercial interests and public health. This session, run by Beatriz González López-Valcárcel and Vicente Ortún, both experts in administration and health, discussed issues such as the recommendations from organisations like the World Health Organisation (WHO), the process of the development of patents, the marketing of generic medicines and the development of medicines in cases of pandemic emergencies or those mainly affecting the so-called Third World.
