When facing an outbreak of socially-impactful infectious diseases such as the Ebola virus, WHO may work with pertinent regulatory agencies not only for disease containment but also on clinical studies of possible therapeutics. But other WHO activities, such as pre-qualification or reliance pathway, are of high interest in developed countries. Many observers still have the strong impression that WHO mostly works with developing countries from the global public health perspective. This session will explain what activities WHO conducts, and discuss how the industry and/or regulatory agencies can collaborate with WHO to contribute to global health.
