[e-drug] Technical Briefing Seminar 28 October ? 1 November WHO

E-DRUG: Technical Briefing Seminar 28 October – 1 November WHO
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am pleased to announce the next Technical Briefing Seminar (TBS), organized 
by the WHO Department of Essential Medicines and Health Products will be held 
28 October – 1 November 2013 at WHO Headquarters in Geneva.

The programme, as in previous years, includes updates on relevant topics such 
as National Medicines Policies, quality assurance, UN pre-qualification, the 
WHO List of Essential Medicines, and rational use of medicines. New themes this 
year include medicines as part of universal health coverage and 
non-communicable diseases. Also new this year is the inclusion of vaccines in 
the programme. For the first time a poster session for participants to showcase 
relevant work will be held during the TBS.

The programme will be available shortly at 
http://www.who.int/medicines/technical_briefing/tbs/en/index.html  Links to 
previous seminars and registration information is available at this site.

The seminar is aimed at national government officials, WHO and other UN staff, 
NGO and pharmaceutical company staff and academics. Every year a mixture of 
participants are selected to ensure that there is active participation and 
varied inputs to all sessions. Speaker presentations and resource documents are 
made available to all participants and are posted on the web site.

Participation at the seminar is free of charge but participants will have to 
arrange for and finance their own travel, board and lodging.

The closing date for applications is 20 September 2013. Early applications are 
encouraged from people from countries who need to apply for Schengen visas.
