Alexander Carter - Institute of Global Health Innovation | Imperial College London - Associate Academic at the London School of Economics and Political Science
Short description of the presentation:
Health systems are highly dynamic and complex systems. This is a consequence of ongoing change in the burden of disease facing populations; the rapid evolution of techniques, processes and products available to prevent or treat disease; and political tides that induce system-wide reforms with or without evidence. In this presentation, Alexander Carter will characterise the challenges facing health systems, explaining the incremental change(s) taking place, and introducing promising approaches to market access that can help industry become more resilient.
