In this episode of the Legal Capsule, Dr. Dhvani Mehta- Lead, Health, and Shreya Shrivastava discussed the questions faced by policymakers in the area of drug regulation, during the COVID-19 pandemic. What do we mean by a child’s consent to vaccination? How to ensure rational usage of drugs in emergency and/or unforeseen situations? Should schools have a policy of mandatory vaccination amongst children? How to regulate the drug regulators, so as to ensure accountability? In addition to responding to these questions, Dhvani and Shreya also recommended short-term and long-term reforms for making our drug-regulatory system better prepared for public health emergencies. The discussion was moderated by Yogini Oke.SHOW LESS
