Improving access to antibiotics is critical, especially in LMICs where antibiotic shortages are often a huge challenge.  Economic and procurement tools have the potential to remove critical barriers for both countries and suppliers. Join us for a dynamic webinar to unpack the findings of pioneering work which models the impact of affordable access on LMICs and incentivizes suppliers of antibiotics to enter more markets. SECURE is a joint initiative of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Global Antibiotic Research & Development Partnership (GARDP).

About the event:

Alongside other interventions, the analysis has explored pooled procurement, stockpiling and catalytic financing support for countries to enable a consistent and affordable supply of antibiotics to address drug resistant infections. The goal is to create market efficiencies, predictability of supply and cost savings. Apart from a presentation on SECURE, the webinar featured a panel discussion which focused on insights from the analysis, explored how SECURE could work in countries and highlighted the impact it could have on access to antibiotics in lower and middle income countries (LMICs).
