Capacity Building on IP and Access to Medicines

ITPC has expanded its treatment education efforts to support community expertise in intellectual property and access to medicines. 

We conduct regional IP trainings in EECA, LATCA, and MENA, providing the treatment activists with the fundamental knowledge in intellectual property rights. In 2017, 57 activists were trained on the technical content and entry points to advocate more effectively for access to affordable, quality treatment.

This work – where treatment education and intellectual property overlap – highlights how all four areas of ITPC’s work have strategic synergy.
