On the occasion of the World Health Assembly, we cordially invite you to attend a the side event convened by the Drugs for Neglected Diseases Initiative (DNDi), the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF), and the Medicines Patent Pool (MPP) on behalf of the Global Accelerator for Paediatric Formulations (GAP-f). The event, “Accelerating innovations and access to #bettermeds4kids: a spotlight on medicines for children” is scheduled to take place Geneva in a hybrid format, on Wednesday, 24 May 2023, from 18:30-20:00pm. This event will bring the experience from Member States, key stakeholders, and existing mechanisms that are effectively contributing to addressing paediatric medicine innovation and access challenges, aiming to contribute to mobilizing leadership around debates on clinical trials in forgotten populations and maternal, newborn and child health taking place at WHA 76.
The objective of the session will be to serve as the basis for continued advocacy by the Global Accelerator for Paediatric Formulations (GAP-f) WHO network, strengthening high-level political attention on innovation and access to adapted paediatric medicines, reviving the 2016 WHA resolution 69.20 on “Promoting innovation and access to quality, safe, efficacious and affordable medicines for children” towards inclusion in the agenda of a future WHA.
