Speech title & Synopsis
As societies cautiously emerge from the Pandemic and the healthcare industry gradually addresses the huge backlog of cases put on hold, the Pharmaceutical industry will find that ‘the past is a foreign country’ and a ‘new normal ‘ will emerge. The presentation identifies the key changes Pharma has to address to continue to be relevant: most of these were needed before the Pandemic but the virus has become an accelerant of change and from it Pharma can emerge as a stronger partner for healthcare globally.
