Towards an Alternative Future for Medicines 

Rising prices of new medicines are having a profound impact globally as even the wealthiest countries struggle to pay exorbitant costs. A panel of leading international experts, patient advocates and pharmaceutical industry representatives will come together in Dublin on April 7th to discuss the current model of drug development and propose interventions and alternative models that place population health front and centre, while dramatically reducing the price of new medicines.
