The Directors General of the WHO, WIPO and the WTO agreed, within the existing collaboration framework, to organize practical capacity-building workshops at the technical level to enhance the flow of updated information on current developments in the pandemic and responses to achieve equitable access to COVID-19 health technologies. The aim of these workshops is to strengthen the capacity of policymakers and experts in member governments to address the pandemic accordingly.

The first in the series of workshops, scheduled for September 27, 2021, will address technology transfer and licensing.
