RegNet Research Director’s work featured at key proceedings

In recent ‘proof of concept’ publications, Professor Susan Sell traced the effects of macroeconomic structural change to social outcomes focused on health. Her work showed how intellectual property (IP) protection and financialisation have shaped access to Universal Health Care; unequal disease burdens; and COVID-19 responses.
