Date and Time:            2 October 2018, 11:30-13:00

Venue:                          Room S1, The World Trade Organization (WTO), Geneva

Organizer:                   The South Centre


This session explores the links between intellectual property, trade and the achievement of the human right to health. Particularly, it aims at discussing how the full use of TRIPS flexibilities to protect public health and provide access to medicines for all (as set by SDG 3.b) contributes to a trade framework favourable to sustainable development and innovation. By sharing concrete experiences from around the world, empirical findings and the normative grounds of TRIPS in relation to both development and human rights, including the Doha Declaration on the TRIPS Agreement and Public Health, the session will delineate how to adequately balance “wealth and health” in an inclusive, sustainable, and equitable manner for all countries and peoples.
