In Global Health Impact - Extending Access to Essential Medicines, Professor Nicole Hassoun proposes a novel approach to evaluate the impact of pharmaceuticals and pharmaceutical companies. The approach

*         Addresses questions and relies on methodology that is interdisciplinary in nature, covering fields of study including economics, political science, public policy, sociology, geography, and philosophy.

*         Emphasizes empirical evidence as critical to assessing the capabilities and capacities of agents and institutions and valuing how facts inform political theory.

*         Considers the obligations of pharmaceutical companies and the case for a new kind of ethical investment and consumption to promote global health from the perspective of bioethicists and business ethicists.

This webinar is hosted by the FTA-Medicines-Empirics Network, an informal group formed at the Global Congress on Intellectual Property and the Public Interest in 2018. Its goal is to advance the empirical study of the impact of TRIPS-Plus Free Trade Agreements (and FTA provisions) on access to pharmaceuticals, vaccines, and diagnostics.
