A Human-Centered Approach to Health Innovations: Reconciling Intellectual Property with Human Rights

Access to health innovations should be informed by a human-centered approach that reconciles intellectual property rules and policies with human rights. Under the current intellectual property regime, innovators are entitled to patent monopolies, regulatory exclusivities and other protections that prevent especially lower-income households from accessing life-saving medical products and technologies. As the COVID-19 pandemic and other national, regional and global health exigencies show, many important vaccines, treatments, diagnostics and other health technologies remain unaffordable or inaccessible to millions of people, many of whom suffer or die as a result.

We invite activists, academics, policymakers, industry representatives, health professionals and other practitioners to contribute to an edited open-access volume advancing a human-centered approach to health innovations. By exploring how this approach can alleviate or resolve the problematic trade-offs in the health and pharmaceutical fields, we hope to enrich the human rights debate and to formulate new innovation models and practices that would better realize the right to health and other relevant human rights. We will invite selected contributors to present their draft essays at a hybrid workshop in New Haven, Connecticut, 28–30 October 2022. For full details, click here.

With Global Financial Integrity and Academics Stand Against Poverty, the Global Justice Program is announcing the Ninth Annual Amartya Sen Essay Prize competition. There will be a First Prize of $5,000 and a Second Prize of $3,000; winning essays must be available for publication in Journal ASAP.
