Inform your Market Access Strategy with Cross-Border Perspectives on CUSMA, Affordable Drug Prices and Access to Prescription Medicine during Covid-19 and Beyond

One of the consequences of Covid-19 is the problem many people have accessing prescription medication in both Canada and the U.S. because of unemployment and escalating drug costs.  Both Canada and the U.S. have taken steps to address rising costs, so far with limited success.  CUSMA will also have an impact on access going forward.  Gain key insights on:

  • The impact CUSMA may have on IP and Canada’s listing on the ‘Watch List’ of the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative
  • Canada’s future prospects of gaining access to vaccines for Covid-19
  • Progress of drug price containment initiatives of both Canada and the U.S.
