Ministerio de Salud de Chile.

The COVID-19 crisis has disrupted already fragile medical supply chains. Medical device companies are struggling to meet the growing demand and pharmaceutical companies face similar challenges to deliver much needed supplies to key markets. Production has slowed as the supplier countries have been impacted by the pandemic, resulting in a diminished workforce capacity. As demand for key medical products grows, many governments have enacted trade restrictions in an effort to secure supplies.

Join the Council of the Americas for a high-level panel to discuss what governments and businesses should be doing right now to facilitate effective medical supply chain management in the healthcare sector.

Speakers:

  • Kevin McAleenan, former Acting Secretary of U.S. Homeland Security 
  • Martin Olmedo, Head of Supply Chain, Latin America, Roche @RocheLatam
  • Eric Farnsworth, Vice President, Council of the Americas (moderator) @ericfarns
