PharmaFutures 3 was centred around two workshops – in London and Mumbai – at which the Working Group explored current challenges and opportunities to better aligning business value with societal need.

PharmaFutures 3 was a solutions-focused, structured dialogue convened by the pension fund founders of the PharmaFutures series – APG and USS. Central to the project was a Working Group comprised of representatives from the pension funds, pharmaceutical companies, industry analysts, global health experts, social entrepreneurs and emerging markets experts.
