Regulatory frameworks and processes that achieve public health objectives, increasingly depend on promoting collaboration, networking, dialogue, trust, and interdependence. This session will gather experts - from international organizations, health authorities, research institutions and industry - to explore international best practices that support transparent, predictable, and consistent regulatory activity, where individual players focus their efforts on where they can add the best value.

Learning Objective : At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
  • Identify main concepts and uses of Good Regulatory Practices and Good Reliance Practices
  • Assess relevance and application for strengthening regulatory systems in Latin America and the Caribbean
  • Distinguish current challenges and opportunities in achieving more efficient regulatory oversight in the region
