Conference Keynotes

PHARMACEUTICAL POLICY, ACCESS TO MEDICINES AND PATIENT HEALTH OUTCOMES:
WHAT’S THE FUTURE LIKE?

Medicines are vital to alleviate suffering and to improve patient health outcomes, however, one-third of the world’s population still lacks access to essential medicines. The pharmaceutical policy deals with the issues related to “access and affordability of medicines”. “medicines funding and reimbursement”, “generic medicines”, “medicines safety”, “medicines pricing” “access to high-cost medicines” and the “optimal use of medicines”. Achieving equitable access to affordable quality medicines through evidence-based pharmaceutical policies is a global challenge. This is even a greater challenge in the countries where majority medicine expenses are paid out of pocket by consumers. This is coupled with the fact that non-communicable diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular conditions, and cancers are on the rise, innovative drugs are coming to the market and the health budgets are increasing worldwide. This lecture will discuss issues related to global access to medicines and what policies have helped countries to improve the situation. It will also highlight balancing health and industrial policy objectives and what future holds in access and policy debate.

RECLAIM THE FUTURE
TAKING BACK TOMORROW FROM LAZY FUTURISTS, SCAREMONGERS, SILCON VALLEY AND DONALD TRUMP

The Future is a promise of a better tomorrow. No industry embraced this idea more than Pharma/ Life sciences. Today, we fall into a trap when we talk about the years ahead. Instead of thinking of how we can make things different and better, we fall into deterministic thinking about job-stealing robots, AI, climate change, populism and war. We can and should do better than that when we think ahead. That’s the starting point for Swedish futurologist Magnus Lindkvist’s talk at the 5th Pakistan Pharma Summit in February 2020. With a background as an economist, book writer, rock star and filmmaker, Lindkvist will weave together an inspirational tapestry of ideas to inspire the Pharma industry of Pakistan and beyond to think about the future in new ways.

by MAGNUS LINDKVIST

Magnus Lindkvist is a trendspotting futurologist and author who weaves together important current trends to forecast what life, society and business might look like in the future. It is the fantastic timing, storytelling and politically incorrect humour that keep the audience – a global audience – laughing and talking well after his talk ends. He has given in excess of a thousand keynote speeches over the past decade to everyone from Fortune 500 CEOs and civil servants in the Middle East to anyone looking to be inspired and enlightened by trendspotting and future-thinking. With a Master of Science in Business and Economics from Stockholm School of Economics and a degree in film production from UCLA, Lindkvist weaves together the worlds of quantitative insights with the imaginative storytelling of Hollywood.
