Impacts of the vaccine intellectual property rights waiver on global supply
In a #policy reversal, the US has announced its support for a proposed temporary waiver of #intellectual #property #rights on COVID-19-related #pharmaceuticals, although it is unclear how much of the undisclosed information regarding #unpatented #elements would be disclosed in order to facilitate technology transfer to developing countries. In my opinion, based in this research, the most efficient way to achieve equitable vaccine access would be to concentrate production in a smaller number of countries with sufficient production capacity. It also looks at the implications for #Italy, which is caught in a dilemma between the need to vaccinate the #population quickly and the need to secure #incentives for developing domestic #vaccine #capacity for future #pandemics.
