July 20, 2016 (All day)

901 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington, DC 20001

Description

Duke-Margolis convened an expert workshop to address the challenges facing antibiotic research and development, with a focus on building consensus around incentives that reward antimicrobial development based on societal value rather than volume sold. The goal of this meeting was to explore the role of economic incentives in drug development and evaluate potential reimbursement models such as “de-linkage” that could support both stewardship and expanded development for antimicrobial drug products.
