For this week's Tuesday Licensing Forum @ 2pm we will have a special presentation and discussion with Julia Barnes-Weise, Executive Director of the Global Healthcare Innovation Alliances Accelerator (GHIAA). Please join us for: Achieving Global Access Through License Agreements.
This presentation will provide an introduction to the concept of equitable access and the implementation of access requirements in development, funding and license agreements. Illustrated with examples from the GHIAA MAPGuide, the presentation will provide an insight into the use of 'humanitarian' or 'public health' licenses and technology transfer requirements as mechanisms to ensure that medical products are made accessible to populations in need.
