Symposium ‘When markets fail; strategies for health, development and investment' summary online
Symposium on our approach picked up by Dutch media.
The symposium ‘When markets fail; strategies for health, development and investment’ focused on new approaches to development and health on October 7th. The symposium was organized by the Amsterdam Institute for Global Health and Development and PharmAccess and was picked up by the second largest Dutch newspaper ‘de Volkskrant’.
The symposium brought together international experts from academia, government, private sector and financing agencies active in emerging economies to discuss how donors, public policy and private partners can work together in addressing the prevailing market failures that inhibit economic and social development.
Speakers included Sweder van Wijnbergen, Joep Lange, Kees Storm, Onno Schellekens, Fola Laoye, Sjoerd van Keulen, Wilfred Griekspoor and Nanno Kleiterp. PharmAccess, the Health Insurance Fund and partners were the main topic during the second part of the day. PharmAccess and the Health Insurance Fund served as an example of this new approach.
