Patients and drug regulation seminar

Saturday, 23 August 2014

On behalf of Alianza Latina and the International Alliance of Patients’ Organizations (IAPO) we are
honored to invite you to attend a jointly held multi-stakeholder seminar entitled, ‘Increasing the
patient voice in drug regulatory authorities.’

This meeting will provide an opportunity for debates with a variety of healthcare stakeholders, including
patients’ organizations, drug regulatory authorities, academia, industry, policy-makers, and
healthcare providers on how patient engagement at all stages of regulation can ensure safe
and timely access to treatments, and ultimately achieve universal health coverage (UHC). The
seminar will also focus on global, regional and national level activities on biological and biosimilar medicines.


The meeting will take place on Saturday 23 August 2014 from 14.00-18.30 at the Hotel Windsor
Florida, Rio de Janeiro ( and will be
held in English, Spanish and Portuguese. Following this we hope you will join us in continuing our
discussions during an evening reception at 18.30.
