IISD-UNIGE Webinar | Trade and Health: What the World Health Assembly outcomes mean for the trade regime
The 73rd World Health Assembly (WHA)—the annual meeting of the WHO's decision-making body—adopted a series of important resolutions in May 2020, including on the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The debate leading up to the WHA—and in its wake—brought up issues at the nexus of the trade and public health regimes, such as the use of intellectual property rights (IPRs) flexibilities in global trade rules to support the COVID-19 response.
This webinar was held on Tuesday, July 14, at 3 p.m. CEST / 9 a.m. EDT and explored these issues in further detail. The webinar featured Suerie Moon, Co-Director of the Global Health Centre at the Graduate Institute, as the speaker, as well as Thiru Balasubramaniam, Geneva Representative for Knowledge Ecology International (KEI), as discussant.
