Pandemic Flu Vaccines Workshop
In January 2007, the China CDC and the NBR Center for Health and Aging brought together 80 executives from policy, public health, science, and industry to discuss how to build a model for global collaboration on pandemic influenza vaccine research, development, manufacturing, and regulation. This model could include a new framework for access to disease strain and sequence databases as well as international policy structures that facilitate manufacturing and development and encourage collaboration among all countries and parties.
Our efforts to create new research and policy platforms are aimed at the following issues:
Misaligned incentives for collaboration and transparency
Uneven access to information on strains and sequences
Ineffective clinical trial methodologies
Inadequate worldwide manufacturing capacity
Inadequate international infrastructure for vaccine dissemination
Political and economic barriers to vaccine R&D
Inefficient approval and regulatory processes
Importantly, by carrying discussions from this workshop into the 2007 Pacific Health Summit and beyond, we hope to create a mechanism for long-term collaboration and engagement in the areas of research, development, and policy implementation.
