Shah Talks About Public-Private Partnerships

A post on “PharmaTech Talk” highlights comments made by USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah at the Partnerships for Global Health Forum, an annual event which is sponsored by BIO and BioVentures for Global Health. “Shah talked about the role of public-private partnerships to improve innovations in science and technology. … Shah admitted that in the past it has been hard for the private sector to engage USAID, but he made a point to say that if the biotech/pharma industry builds a breakthrough product that can save lives, USAID will help to deliver it to the populations that need it most. He said USAID is already working to better engage the private sector as well as academic institutions to make such partnerships easier to navigate, and less bureaucratic” (Drakulich, 6/27).
