Innovation in Pharma and Equity in Health Systems

Innovation in Pharma and Equity in Health Systems

This IKD project, with collaborators in Italy, India, Tanzania and Brazil, was launched in 2008 to research the connections between innovation and equity. It focuses on health care as this represents a crucial issue and “example” in the analysis of the interrelations between innovation and inequality. The aim is to tackle the issue by bringing together an understanding of the construction of capabilities in innovation and manufacturing in pharmaceuticals and the construction of ‘health system capability’ to deliver access to the innovative outputs.
