Presenting his paper titled Protecting Digital Public Health: Towards a Regulatory Framework for Internet Pharmacies, Global Health Foresighting Fellow Aria Ilyad Ahmad explored the necessity and challenges of establishing global governance structures for internet pharmacies. Emerging as a leading issue in global health, internet pharmacies can enhance access to medicines while exacerbating or creating public health risks. Creating regulations to amplify the benefits and minimize the risks is almost as complicated as the internet itself.
The seminar was held in the lead up to the 2019 Internet Governance Forum in Berlin, where Ahmad chaired two panels, one of them presented by the Dahdaleh Institute, on the same topic.
