Sustainability of Vaccines Industry: Coping with pricing pressures

India is supplying more than 60% of the vaccines procured by GAVI. Vaccines in the public market are older and mass manufactured. Due to the cost of production, new vaccines are not able to enter the market. Should local vaccine manufacturers focus on ensuring cheap production of old vaccines for the public market or should they develop new vaccines for their private market instead? This session will explore differences between public & private markets, together with strategies for navigating the public market.
  • Comparing the differences between public and private market in terms of development and production cost
  • Understanding the differences in demands for both markets
