Public health, innovation, intellectual property and trade

Trilateral cooperation on intellectual property and public health

Since the adoption of the WHO Global Strategy and Plan of Action on Public Health, Innovation and Intellectual Property, WHO, WIPO and WTO have intensified their collaboration on public health and intellectual property.

This Trilateral Cooperation is meant to foster a better understanding of the linkage between public health and intellectual property policies and to enhance a mutually supportive implementation of those policies. The three Secretariats have since worked together more closely so that each can fulfill its own mandate more effectively, their initiatives support each other, efforts are not duplicated, and resources are used efficiently, for example, in technical assistance and capacity building.

The three Organizations have started a range of joint activities that build upon each of the three organizations’ specific mandates and programmes of activities.
