Ten million people die each year from diseases that have available cures. Nearly 1/3 of all people do not have regular access to essential medicines, and in the poorest parts of Africa and Asia this figure rises to over 50%. Udo Shuklenk, a bioethicist and Professor at Queens’ University has written,“In the real world there is no such thing as a fixed local standard of care. Rather, the local standard of care in, for example, India, is a standard of care determined by the prices set by Western pharmaceutical multinationals.” Indeed, the reasons for lack of access to essential medicines are complex, but much of it boils down to price. On today’s episode of the HJRC we speak with Rachel Kiddell-Monroe, President of Universities Allied for Essential Medicines, about what role Universities can play in bridging the access gap.
