Profs Bernie Avishai (GOV), Kendall Hoyt (Geisel and Thayer), and Chris Snyder (ECON), discussed plans to improve the financing for vaccines in this PEP event.
Is the current method of raising capital for expensive vaccines, such as those presently in preparation for the coronavirus COVID-19, the best we can do? The three speakers at this event think not.
Chris Snyder ("In the Race for a Coronavirus Vaccine, We Must Go Big. Really, Really Big," New York Times, May 2020), Kendall Hoyt ("Designing Pull Funding For A COVID-19 Vaccine," Health Affairs, Sept 2020), and Bernie Avishai ("The Case for a Coronavirus-Vaccine Bond," The New Yorker, Sept 2020) all have been actively exploring bolder approaches to vaccine financing.
The event took place on Tuesday, October 27, 2020, at noon.
