The workshop is organized by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and Capacity Building International (InWent) in collaboration with the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development (ICTSD) and the Trade Law Centre for Southern Africa (Tralac).

The workshop is designed to improve the understanding of the provisions of the Agreement on Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) as they relate to measures for the protection of public health and their implications for local production of pharmaceuticals. The workshop targets local pharmaceutical producers, government officials (ministries of health, trade and industry, intellectual property offices, drug registration authorities and investment promotion agencies), civil society and academia.
