On 17 May 2011, Knowledge Ecology International (KEI) organized a

agenda item of "Patents and Health" for the first time, KEI assembled  
a panel of experts to discuss remedies to address the shrinking policy  
space enshrined in the TRIPS Agreement and the Doha Declaration on the  
TRIPS Agreement and Public Health in the context of bilateral and  
plurilateral trade agreements including the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade  
Agreement (ACTA) and the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). The agenda  
item on patents and health is expected to be discussed on Wednesday,  
18 May 2011 when the African Group will present its submission to the  
patent committee.

Director, Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies on Industrial Property  
and Economics Law, University of Buenos Aires and Adviser, South
