Panel Discussion: (A New Model for Global Health & Development Innovation). Moderator: Trevor Mundel (President, Global Health, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation). Panelists: Ifeyinwa Aniebo (Senior Research Scientist and Principal Investigator, Health Strategy and Delivery Foundation, Nigeria); Francis Collins, Director, United States National Institutes of Health; Boitumelo Semete-Makokotlela (Chief Executive Officer, South African Health Products Regulatory Authority); Paul Stoffels (Vice Chair of the Executive Committe and Chief Scientific Officer, Johnson & Johnson)
Panelists in this discussion evaluate where we saw the global R&D ecosystem fall short during the COVID-19 pandemic and ask what it should look like: not just for COVID-19 and future pandemics, but for the major challenges that global health leaders have fought against for decades. Panelists specifically explore how to redesign the global health ecosystem to advance cutting-edge science as quickly as possible while building a locally led, gender-equal R&D ecosystem.
