The Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy invites you to attend a
public workshop entitled, “Designing Economic Incentives for Antimicrobials: Implementation in the U.S. Context,” which will
take place on November 9th, 2016, at Hotel Monaco located at 700 F
Street NW, Washington, DC 20004.
Bacteria resistant to antimicrobial drugs are responsible for an increasing number of infections. Few treatment options are available and the situation will continue to worsen if concrete actions are not taken. Immediate improvement in prevention measures, sustainable use, global awareness, and pharmceutical innovation are essential to combating antimicrobial resistance. The Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy is focused on advancing the development of innovative, accessible, and sustainable antimicrobials through the design and evaluation of economic incentives that reward effective drugs with reimbursement that is de-linked from sales volume. In July 2016, the Center convened an expert workshop to explore the practical implementation of several proposed economic incentives for antimicrobials. Following this workshop, the Center worked to build a pathway to value-based reimbursement for innovative antimicrobial products. The purpose of this public meeting is to share the research findings and preliminary policy recommendations with the broader stakeholder community and to evaluate challenges to implementation.
Registration for this event is open. Please note that in person registration is limited and first come, first serve. This event will also be webcast. Please find us at healthpolicy.duke.edu for more information.
