COVID RECOVERY: TRADE IN HEALTH RECOVERY
The past year has demonstrated the power – and the necessity – of the health care industry and access to products. From vaccines to medical devices to PPE, countries have struggled to make sure that domestic health care systems have all the necessary goods and equipment to deliver service. Global health care is a $11.9T market. How can trade policy support innovation in health care R&D, access to life-saving medicines and technology, and investment in emerging markets for sustainable growth? With an introductory overview by the Spring 2021 WIIT Trust Young Leader Scholarship Winner, Kelsey Kats, we will hear from a range of experts with insights and ideas on growth in health care trade.
