Global Health Progress Stresses Importance of Product Development Partnerships

Recent Forbes commentary questions PDP's role play in fighting neglected diseases.


2010-08-21
WASHINGTON, DC, August 21, 2010 (Press-News.org) Helen Coster's recent commentary in her new Forbes blog Good Work addresses the issue of how product development partnerships (PDPs) can develop and improve treatments for neglected diseases like malaria, leishmaniasis, and Chagas disease.

Coster notes, "These diseases affect the world's poorest people, and they often get ignored by pharmaceutical companies for a simple economic reason: there is no way that considerable investment in research will be recouped in drug sales."

Coster's entry highlights the work of some of the best-known PDPs, such as the Drugs for Neglected Disease Initiative, Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization, the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis & Malaria. Coster also highlighted the significant funding of PDPs by The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

In closing, Coster invites her readers to discuss the PDP approach to eradicating neglected diseases and what role, if any, the pharmaceutical industry, philanthropists and other global organizations should play in the fight.

Global Health Progress also believes that public-private product development partnerships are invaluable in expanding the capacity of research and development (R&D) on innovative drugs and vaccines for neglected diseases. These partnerships help by harnessing the technical expertise and resources of the private sector with the approach of universities, research institutes and other public organizations.

For example, research-based biopharmaceutical companies routinely partner with numerous organizations and dedicate hundreds of millions of dollars and their expertise to researching neglected diseases and to developing the next generation of medicines and vaccines. These collaborations are critical in creating practical and innovative solutions in fighting diseases of the developing world, and part of GHP's mission is to highlight the successes of these partnerships.

Obtaining an EB-5 Visa by Investing in a Regional Center

2010-08-21
For those seeking permanent resident status in the United States, the often underutilized EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program may be a productive avenue. The "Immigrant Investor Visa", or EB-5 visa, is an investment-based opportunity that lets foreign nationals obtain a green card. By investing in a commercial enterprise in the United States and creating jobs for U.S. workers, foreign citizens may be able to become permanent U.S. residents. However, the EB-5 program is not as simple as it may appear, and there are several potential pitfalls to keep in mind. How the Immigrant ...

Family Law Attorneys Urge Less Adversarial Approach to Custody Disputes

2010-08-21
A push by the American Bar Association - arising from their recent "Families Matter" symposium - seeks to collaboratively create an alternative system of conflict resolution for couples involved in custody disputes. Family law attorneys from around the nation gathered to flesh out a plan to revolutionize the process of resolving family law issues, particularly those relating to divorces, custody battles and relocations. Why Is Change Needed? At present, even relatively simple divorces or other family court matters can easily take a year to resolve and cost parties ...

The Evolution of Fatherhood

2010-08-21
In the aftermath of a global financial crisis, more and more men find themselves being so-called "stay-at-home dads". Scores of layoffs - 80 percent of them affecting men - have chosen to forgo their job search and be full-time caregivers. Other men have consciously made the decision to leave the hustle and bustle of the workplace, wanting to see for themselves how it is to spend more time with their families. The idea that mothers alone are responsible for the bulk of child rearing is changing, and the world is more accepting of fathers who choose to be more involved. ...

America, Land of the ... Prosecuted?

2010-08-21
As crime rates continue to serve as a hot-button political issue, campaigners have increasingly held a "get tough on crime" stand. While attempting to take a bite out of crime has become a bipartisan pastime, America's prisons have filled with more than murderers, rapists and violent gang members. According to The Economist, there are currently approximately 200,000 inmates over the age of 50; this is roughly the total number of prisoners of all ages in 1970. Prison is expensive. To house the state's incarcerated population, Pennsylvania taxpayers annually pay approximately ...

When Questioned By Police (And With No Attorney), Some Falsely Confess

2010-08-21
For as long as there have been police dramas on TV, there have been dramatic jailhouse confessions -- the accused breaks down, sobbing, and admits to the police that yes, he committed the crime. But for many innocent people, the drama of a police interrogation is entirely real, and it's enough to make even innocent people confess to crimes they never committed. The Innocence Project, a national organization dedicated to establishing (through DNA testing) the innocence of those wrongly convicted, says that 25 percent of the wrongful convictions it has overturned included ...

"Stop on Red Week" Reminds Drivers to Obey Traffic Signals

2010-08-21
The Federal Highway Administration recently sponsored their ninth annual "National Stop on Red Week," aimed at increasing awareness of the hazards associated with running red lights. Though most motorists assume that speeding or driving while intoxicated causes the majority of accidents around the country, that is not the case with accidents in urban or metropolitan areas - in those locations, red light running is the leading cause. Sadly, half of the deaths associated with a driver's failure to stop at a red light are of innocent bystanders like pedestrians and occupants ...
