ARTNeT-LES Seminar on the New Generation of FTAs and their Implications on Health Systems and Policies

11 Mar 2016
Bangkok, Thailand

This ARTNeT workshop, organized with the Licensing Executives Society Thailand (LES), will disseminate the results of recent research on the nature and impacts of the new generation Free Trade Agreements (FTAs), and in particular their intellectual property rights contents, on national health systems and policies. The workshop will bring together several trade, competition and health experts from academia and representatives of the private sector including those who deal with the trade and intellectual property-related aspects of pharmaceuticals. The workshop is expected to result in increased awareness of the current state of affairs concerning the intellectual property rights contents of FTAs and further utilization of empirical evidence of health related impacts in designing FTAs.
