Our Insights

What Can We Expect in Global Health in 2019?
As we prepare for another year of uncertainty and change, we can be sure that some issues will continue to play center stage in the coming months – pressures on biopharmaceutical pricing; reimbursement and regulation as they relate to the accessibility of new medicines for patients in developed and emerging markets; the struggle of global health funding streams as governments and other donors address a wide range of competing priorities; and the entry of new actors in the healthcare space creating partnerships and coalitions that would have been unexpected even five years ago. 

Read on to see Rabin Martin's predictions for global health trends to watch in 2019.
