Abstract

The Consultative Expert Working Group on Research and Development: Financing and Coordination (CEWG) was established by the World Health Assembly in 2010 with the principal task of deepening the analysis and work done by the previous Expert Working Group on Research and Development: Coordination and Financing (EWG) that reported in 2010. Underlying both expert groups was the objective set out in the Global Strategy and Plan of Action on Public Health, Innovation and Intellectual Property:

“…to examine current financing and coordination of research and development, as well as proposals for new and innovative sources of financing to stimulate research and development related to Type II and Type III diseases and the specific research and development needs of developing countries in relation to Type I diseases.”
