Tags: | August 27th, 2018

The 22nd International AIDS Conference in Amsterdam, The Netherlands 23 – 27 July 2018 hosted the session “Accelerating the development and uptake of the most needed drug formulations for children”.

Martina Penazzato from the World Health Organization (WHO) introduced the Global Accelerator for Paediatric Formulations (GAP-f) which aims to promote a faster, more efficient and more focused approach to paediatric formulation development.

Carlo Giaquinto and Elaine J. Abrams contributed with a presentation on Prioritization and clinical research of priority formulations.

Thanks to all participants involved for their valuable collaboration. The event proved very useful indeed in drawing more attention to the important topic of developing appropriate paediatric drug formulations.
