CIPIH Studies

In April 2004 the Commission held its first meeting to discuss amongst other things, the priority areas on which it should focus its attention. The Commission agreed to focus its work in the following broad subject areas: the burden of disease, and research and development; intellectual property and public health; other incentives for innovation; traditional medicine and capacity building. Accordingly, it decided on a programme of work consisting of studies, consultations, visits to countries and the production of its report.

A series of stud­ies have now been commissioned. Please click on the titles below for more information on each study. The Commission also plans to provide different stakeholders the opportunity to share their comments and input into the studies during a series of workshops in May 2005.
