COVID-19 Response: New Opportunities & Implications for the Future of Drug Development in Emerging Economies

The COVID-19 epidemic has led to new sources of research funding being channeled towards emerging economies. This funding from philanthropists and global governance bodies reflects the fact that emerging economies may not see the peak of the infections for months to come and need support in effectively dealing with the consequences of the pandemic. Understanding the strategic priorities of new funding to properly assess future opportunities for growth is key.
