Meeting global health challenges: Karolinska President discusses how Clinical Pharmacologists can help

The 14th EACPT Congress was held from 29th June to 2nd July in 2019 in Stockholm as a partnership between the EACPT and the Swedish Society for Pharmacology, Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics.

Keynote opening speaker at the EACPT Congress Professor Ole Petter Ottersen discusses how Clinical Pharmacologists in Europe and beyond can help to meet current global health challenges. In particular he notes that 14 of the 17 current WHO strategic development goals are relevant to safe, effective and equitable use of medicines. He also stresses the need to be aware of and address 'sticky institutions', whether governmental, NGO or commercial as barriers to improving global health policy and its implementation.
Professor Ottersen chaired the international Lancet Commission that studied the political determinants of global health inequalities (The Lancet-University of Oslo Commission on Global Governance for Health).
