Bilateral medical co-operation

4 MARCH 2021 13:00 – 16:00 (GMT+3)
In a post C-19 environment, what are the new opportunities for partnership?
The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the vital need for international medical collaboration and The World Health Organisation rely on sound data and research collected and analysed across the globe to make sound judgements based on similarities and diversities of each country.

Russia and UK have a rich history of cooperation across all sciences, including medicine and antimicrobial resistance remains one of the threats to health and economy for both countries so the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy and the Russian Interregional Association for Clinical Microbiology and Antimicrobial Chemotherapy have been working closely together to research to tackle AMR problems. In addition, the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency signed a MoU with its Russian counterpart; the State Institute of Drugs and Good Practices of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation to further enhance cooperation in the field of regulation of medicines between the two countries.

In December 2020, UK and Russian scientists were announced to trial a combination of the British-made Oxford vaccine, developed in partnership with AstraZeneca and the Russian Sputnik vaccine, developed by the Gamaleya Research Institute in Moscow, to see if protection against Covid-19 can be improved.

In order to create a future pipeline of partnership, the 2nd UK-Russia young medic's conference took place at Queens College Cambridge in January last year. Is this level of co-operation enough or in a post pandemic world what are the new opportunities for UK and Russia?
