COVID-19 has brought global attention to the fragility of the medical supply chain. For those with chronic illnesses, drug shortages and access to medication often are lifelong battles. As the coronavirus spread begins to slow, will the pandemic bring about increased awareness of the everyday struggles of patients with chronic diseases? And how can we bridge the gaps in the medical supply chain?
On this episode of the Patients Rising Podcast, we discuss new technologies that can quickly develop small-batch drugs in high demand among patients. We also look into how the pandemic has slowed the supply chain’s transportation of APIs (active pharmaceutical ingredients).
