[EQ] Executive Course on Intellectual Property, Diplomacy and Global Public Health - 15-17 February Geneva Switzerland


Executive Course on Intellectual Property, Diplomacy and Global Public Health

15-17 February, Geneva, Switzerland

Deadline: Friday, 13 January 2012


“….This intensive three-day course is jointly organised by the Global Health Programme of the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies and the Gibbons Institute of Science & Technology, Seton Hall Law School, USA.


Intellectual property (IP) issues play an increasingly important role in discussions of national and global health problems. In response to this growing need, the course is designed to help fill the gap in the understanding of basic IP concepts and their relationship to global public health by exploring current debates about health-related aspects of IP through a multi-disciplinary learning process. Furthermore, the course includes an overview of health and IP issues and is followed by sessions on topics such as:


TRIPS and global public health

Alternative mechanisms to promote research related to neglected diseases

The problem of substandard/spurious/falsely-labelled/falsified/counterfeit medical products

The course will also review examples of national and global health strategies and analyse case studies and negotiation processes at the national, regional and global level.


This executive course targets applicants from different professional backgrounds, such as health attach├ęs, health and international relations professionals in departments of international health, as well as staff in international organisations, NGOs, philanthropic and the private sector.


Venue: Geneva, Switzerland

Course Co-Directors: Prof Nick Drager, Graduate Institute, Switzerland and Prof Carl Coleman, Seton Hall Law School, USA. …”
