Topic : Current Status of IHR Amendments and Pandemic Accord

Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic spurred two significant movements in international public health law. The first was a review of the International Health Regulations (2005), the most important international agreement addressing the outbreak of infectious disease and its control as an international threat. The second was the development of an entirely new pandemic specific agreement to address the many gaps not covered by the IHR (2005) even were it to function effectively. This talk provides an update on these parallel negotiations and what the likely outcomes may be.

Topic:  Commercial Determinants of Health: Asian Lens 

Abstract: Products and practices of some commercial actors adversely impact human and plenary health. They also escalate social and health inequity. Commercial determinants of health are systems, practices, and pathways through which commercial actors drive health and equity. Commercial sector practices include political, marketing, scientific, reputational management, labour and employment, and practices impacting health-enabling legal environments. This talk discusses commercial determinants of health in Asia with examples across industries including tobacco, alcohol, unhealthy foods, breast milk substitute, pharmaceutical, healthcare, social media, palm oil, and tourism.

15:00~15:30    Speaker: Dr. Alison Durran CV

Topic:  Law as a tool Advance Universal health Coverage (UHC)

Abstract:  Over the course of the last decade, global health has increasingly turned its focus toward the pursuit of universal health coverage as a pathway to improving health outcomes around the world.  The Sustainable Development Goals call for the achievement of UHC by the year 2030, and in 2019 the United Nations made its own Political Declaration on UHC. This talk will examine the unique importance of the law as a tool to advance UHC, and will identify and explore key areas of legal reform that are critical to achieving meaningful progress toward UHC at the country level.
