U.S., E.U. Resist Commitments On New Funding, Delinking R&D Costs From Drug Costs In Draft TB Declaration

POLITICO Pro: Draft TB declaration: U.S., E.U. push against funding, delinkage pledges
“The E.U. and U.S. are resisting concrete commitments on new funding for tuberculosis ahead of a high-level U.N. meeting about fighting the world’s top infectious killer. The two regions are also pushing to eliminate language that would urge countries to work to separate the cost of R&D from the price of a drug — so called delinkage — according to a draft of the political declaration to be signed by heads of state at the U.N. General Assembly on September 26…” (Wheaton, 6/12).
