Public-Private Partnerships for Dispensing and Administration of Medical Countermeasures
October 17 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
The National Academies will host a workshop on “Public-Private Partnerships for Dispensing and Administration of Medical Countermeasures” on 17 October 2023.
Lessons learned from past health emergencies highlight the importance of public-private partnerships to facilitate and accelerate the research, development, and manufacturing of vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics (i.e., medical countermeasures). However, less attention was given to public-private partnerships that enabled the successful implementation (distribution, dispensing, monitoring, uptake, and utilization) of medical countermeasures (MCMs), also known as the “last-mile.”
This is part of the Medical Countermeasures- Expanding Delivery and Increasing Uptake Through Public-Private Partnerships workshop series hosted by the National Academies Forum on Medical and Public Health Preparedness for Disasters and Emergencies. The series aims to examine lessons learned and future opportunities for public-private partnerships to facilitate the implementation of medical countermeasures to the public during a public health emergency. Speakers throughout the series will highlight various public-private partnership models deployed during recent health emergencies and discuss potential paths forward for public-private partnerships to facilitate successful implementation of medical countermeasures.
