Prof. Rubin’s lecture will cover the proposed governance structure, which includes four interdependent factors: the need for more basic and translational research, the need for fair and equable development and distribution of drugs and vaccines, harmonized best laboratory practices and knowledge sharing and surveillance using real-time, interoperable centralized databases. This will touch on novel funding schemes including the role of public private partnerships, accessing capital markets and the role of insurance and risk mitigation. The current MERS, SARS Ebola and highly resistant bacterial infections will be used as example in his lecture. Difficulties on establishing any global organization will also be touched in his lecture.
