Global Access in Action -- Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society
Deadline: February 15, 2019
From the description:
Global Access in Action (GAiA) is a dynamic global health non-profit organization that focuses on improving access to lifesaving medicines in vulnerable populations through the implementation of legal, policy, and regulatory reform. We work with key domestic and international stakeholders.
We seek to conduct research on (1) the costs of trade and regulatory barriers to access to medicines in the OECD and China and explore incentive mechanisms that would encourage rapid availability of new medicines, and (2) the strategies to Support Intra-Country Tiered Pricing. The research assistant will be closely involved in the literature review, drafting and revising the white papers or articles.
The RA will work with GAiA’s Co-Directors: Professor William Fisher, Professor Mark Wu, Professor Ruth Okediji and Quentin Palfrey.
