Bureaucracy didn’t block Covid vaccines. Why should it stand in the way of treatments for cancer, diabetes and other diseases?

“This year’s Nobel Prize in Medicine honored the groundbreaking work on mRNA that laid the technological foundation for Covid vaccines. These shots saved hundreds of thousands of lives and helped millions of people get back to normal activities. Yet timely access to the brilliant discoveries was almost denied because of bureaucratic barriers between patients and medical innovation. Efforts like Operation Warp Speed—which fostered Covid vaccine development—should become a permanent part of medical markets.”
