Innovate4Health: How IP and Innovation Are Solving Global Health Challenges

Tuesday, April 24, 2018 - 3:30 PM to 6:00 PM
The Meridian International Center

Washington, DC 20009

Far from being incongruous, innovation and the property rights that secure it are key enablers toward meeting global health challenges. In fact, throughout the developing world, stronger intellectual property rights are proving foundational to unlocking latent innovation potential within entrepreneurs and diverse biological ecosystems.

Please join ITIF and the Center for the Protection of Intellectual Property for an event releasing a new report that documents 25 cases of primarily developing-world entrepreneurs meeting global health challenges by “innovating for health.” The event will discuss what policies, including intellectual property, are needed to underpin successful life-sciences innovation in both the developed and developing world and feature presentations from several developing-country healthcare innovators who are leveraging IP, science, and technology to create a better world.
