Global Health and Technology Access
Dr. Anthony So joined Duke University's Sanford School of Public Policy in 2004 as Director of a new Program on Global Health and Technology Access. The program focuses on issues of globalization and health, particularly innovation and access to essential medicines for those in developing countries. The program works as the Strategic Policy Unit for ReAct, a global coalition dedicated to combating antibiotic resistance. Dr. So's research on the ownership of knowledge and how it is best harnessed to improve the public's health spans from conceptualizing a technology trust and patent pools to reengineering the value chain from R&D to delivery of health technologies for developing countries. He also directs the Global Health Fellows Program that places graduate students in Geneva for policy experiences in global health.
