Barcelona Global Health Summer School: Innovation, Access, and Health

The Barcelona Global Health Summer School 2017 “Innovation, Access, and Health” that will take place from the 16th to the 21st July 2017 in Barcelona, Catalonia – Spain.

The World Health Organisation considers equitable access to effective, safe and affordable drugs, diagnostic devices and preventive tools such as vaccines as vital to the attainment of the highest possible standard of health by all, i.e.: the right to health. However, large parts of the world population do not have access to the tools that will prevent them from being ill, or progress in their diseases, or even die. 

The Barcelona Global Health Summer School 2017 will gather key experts in the field to address the causes, contexts, and consequences of the inequitable access to medicines and what to do about it.

This course is addressed to students and young professionals studying and working in health-related fields to provide a broad understanding of the complex issue that is access to medicines, from drug development in university labs to prescribing a medicine, exploring the role of different actors, the impact of intellectual property, the need of political will and the genesis of advocacy and activist movements.

Applications meeting the required profile are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until maximum number of participants is reached. Candidates will be notified of acceptance by email. Interested candidates should apply using the online application form.
