Debate & Film Screening on May 17th: Pills for Patients or Profit?

They say money cannot buy happiness, but it can certainly buy health! With  the cost of medicines constantly increasing, lower income countries may  be left behind and rich countries struggle to pay the bill. Are  pharmaceutical research and global disease burden still aligned? Should  governments interfere? Conflicting interests and divided opinions make a solution seem far away. Join our interactive discussion and share your  perspective with our expert panel:

Prof. dr. Hans Hogerzeil, Professor of Global Health and the Right to Health, former Director of Essential Medicines and Pharmaceutical Policy at WHO

Ms. Ellen ‘t Hoen, Medicines Law & Policy consultant and founder of the Medicines Patent Pool

Join us on Tues May 17th at 19:00 for a debate and a film screening in the Academy Building at the University of Groningen! Register via and find us on Facebook at events/1691954974387198/.Pills or profits
