Sarah Garner is the Acting Programme Manager of Health Products and Pharmaceuticals of the WHO Euro, and is the former Associate Director for Scientific Policy and Research at the UK’s National Institute for Health and Care Excellence. She is a visionary seeking new approaches to improve innovation, access, and outcomes in healthcare, and has a nuanced view of the financial realities of R&D and the challenges of our national healthcare systems. In this podcast, Sarah discusses the need to support the evaluation of medicines for countries on the periphery of EMEA, as well as the role science and innovation are playing in personalised medicines, and orphan indications.
