The international development community has set a clear goal of reaching universal health coverage by 2030 while leaving no one behind. This also includes access to pharmaceutical products. There are two main licencing mechanisms in this regard: voluntary and compulsory. In times of the COVID-19 pandemic, the issue of accessibility of vaccines necessitates awareness building on the available licencing mechanisms. This webinar will be tailored-made to the context of African countries and will count with the participation of experts who will share best practices on the use of licencing mechanisms (from both European and African countries’ perspectives and experiences).
