With the global temperatures on the rise and increasing climate instability, what will be the impact on health? How can society best respond now to future challenges that both address the economic realities of climate change and anticipate any demands that may be placed upon public health systems which are already under severe strain due to demographic shifts and aging populations.

Natural experiments of the impact of enforced rapid reduction in economic activity and reduced pollution are being seen in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Topics to be considered in the webinar include impacts of planned efforts to limit climate change on financial health and thus funding for healthcare; increasing need for emergency support for floods and associated epidemics; health effects of forced migration; and climate change, pollution and health. Reducing global warming via less pollution would reduce risks of communicable diseases and non- communicable diseases, including cancers. What evidence on health benefits of limiting climate change would lead to a change in policy?

International Reference Pricing in Congressional Bill H.R.3 and Its Potential Impact on the U.S. Biotech Ecosystem

The U.S. Congress has proposed reference pricing for Medicare Part D under Congressional Bill H.R.3 with the objective of benchmarking U.S. drug pricing against an average price basket of 11 countries for the 125 drugs with the greatest net spending in the United States. U.S. drug prices were found to be 3.7 times higher on average.

This study identifies 69 medicines that would be affected by international reference pricing under H.R.3, representing 70% of Medicare Part D spending. We calculate that implementing H.R.3 would lower overall industry revenue by $71.6 billion a year, a reduction of 58% in earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) revenue.

The Economic Pandemic: Aggressive Testing Is Vital to Controlling the Spread of COVID19 and Saving Europe’s Economy

For the last month, a debate has raged over which approach to managing the spread of COVID-19 is correct. One aspect of this debate is about the efficacy of widespread testing. South Korea and Germany have pursued aggressive testing. The Netherlands, Sweden, and the UK – at least initially – limited testing and instead sought to create herd immunity by letting the virus run its course. Which approach is better? Given the implications of getting the choice wrong, opinions towards both approaches have been strong and vociferous. Adding to the confusion, experts disagree about which of many variables are more important for explaining higher rates of morbidity from COVID19. These include the percent of a population over 65 years of age, the case fatality rate, the population density of a region, the availability of hospital beds and ventilators per 1000 population, rates of tourism, usage of public transport, and number of university students in a given area to name a few.
