Geneva Solutions is a new journalistic platform dedicated to covering Genève internationale. We will be launching our website (genevasolutions.news) along with a daily newsletter in August 2020, covering daily news on Peace & Humanitarian, Climate , Global Health, Sustainable Business & Finance, and Technology. In the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic we have opted for an early-release of our Global Health news stream, which starting April 2020 provides insights into how the institutions and people in Geneva are responding to this crisis.

Last week, a report published in The BMJ slammed European drug regulations for allowing biopharmaceuticals to reap "billions" in profits on new drugs for rare diseases, but failing to incentivize sufficient R&D into new cures and treatments. A leading patient advocacy group, however, says that while the regulations may be in need of reform, they have helped advance treatments for many debilitating and deadly rare diseases.
