Supply Chain Risk and Incentive Analysis to Counter Drug Resistance


Project Description

Emergence of drug resistant is posing a major threat to global disease eradication programmes. This phenomenon is framed within global drug supply chains, which are inherently more risky than domestic supply chains due to the numerous links interconnecting a wide network of firms. The traditional approach to effective supply chain risk mitigation involves proper risk sharing among the player by using well aligned, effective incentives. The purpose of this project is to study incentive structures and risk management strategies in global supply chains, under the perspective of minimization the drug resistance built-up.
