<https://www.knowledgeportalia.org/>, a one-stop source providing open
access information, research, and analysis on policies relating to
pharmaceutical innovation and access. Topics are organized under three
interrelated themes: Pricing, Intellectual Property and Innovation.
Resources include: research syntheses on a range of topics, data sources,
webinars and a list of research gaps.

The webinar series and the Knowledge Portal are part of the Knowledge
Network for Innovation and Access to Medicines, a project of the Global
Health Centre at the Graduate Institute of Geneva.
