Mega trade and investment agreements and health

Global trade plays an important role in global health governance, with several WTO agreements and regional and bilateral free trade agreements impacting health in different ways accross countries. The WTO TRIPS agreement harmonized laws that protect intellectual property with deep impacts on access to medicines. Twenty years after the start of its implementation, it is time to take stock of the experience of using TRIPS’ ‘health safeguards’.

The event will be concluded by the launch of the alternative world health report, Global Health Watch 4.

The event will be moderated by David Legge, People’s Health Movement.
