Harald Nusser is Global Head of Novartis Access, a Sandoz-operated portfolio of 15 medicines to treat chronic diseases in low- and low-middle-income countries. The portfolio addresses cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, respiratory illnesses, and breast cancer and will be offered to governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and other public-sector healthcare providers for USD 1 per treatment, per month.
At the World Economic Forum Africa in Kigali last week, health was a major topic, in particular how we can achieve universal health coverage (UHC) through public-private partnerships and how the world can manage future epidemics.
