Joint DIA/EFGCP/EMA Better Medicines for Children Conference 2016 on Optimisation of Drug Development for the Benefit of Children
From 10/10/2016 to 11/10/2016 (European Medicines Agency, London, United Kingdom)

Since 10 years of EU paediatric regulation, considerable progress has been made by all involved in paediatric research: companies, regulators, academia, healthcare professionals and patients. Many products have now obtained a paediatric indication and new data are produced on a daily basis. Nevertheless, many trials recruit slowly and drug development plans are not completed.

The aim of this conference is to discuss how drug development can be further optimised to the benefit of children’s health. This will include a discussion on what we have learned during these years of full operation of the EU paediatric regulation, new concepts and strategies for an integrated approach at each and every step of paediatric development.

Value-based Healthcare: A Global Assessment
29 September 2016 (The Economist)

The case for countries to align their health systems with value-based approaches has perhaps never been stronger. By focusing on outcomes, value-based healthcare (VBHC) can help healthcare providers manage costs and deliver improved care, all with limited resources.

To better understand how countries are progressing towards VBHC, we have assessed the alignment of countries’ current health systems to key components of the VBHC model. The result is an evaluation of the enabling environment for VBHC for 25 countries around the world.
