It's expected to have 100 participants from PLHIV network, chronic-disease patient groups, pharmacist and IP academic, government officers from IP and health departments, and NGO workers. Guest speakers from FDA, DIP, GPO, an academic group, and PLHIV network are invited to share comments on these patent applications. Thai patient and NGO groups will take opportunity to have dialogue directly to the policy makers and give the letter to the Director General at the event.
