“….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.

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
