4.2 Interesting discussion groups

The issue of the impact of international trade agreements on access to drugs and the pharmaceutical sector is increasingly debated through two electronic discussion groups.


E-drug is an electronic conference on essential drugs. E-drug is used by professionals in this field to obtain and discuss current information on essential drugs, including international and national policies, and standard treatment guidelines. Discussions are held in English, French and Spanish.


Treatment-Access is an electronic discussion forum created and managed by the Fondation du Présent, a not-for-profit organization which brings together a multisectoral community of more than 12 000 members - half of them in developing countries - to raise and jointly resolve AIDS-related issues through email discussion.


Ip-health is an electronic newsletter devoted to the relationship and links between intellectual property and health care. The pharm-policy list is no longer in use and has been integrated into this one as their subjects were overlapping. It is one of the most complete and useful lists to follow the evolution of TRIPS.
