Study on awareness and incentives to participate in WHO C-TAP in Latin American countries.


In 2022 and 2023, NGO INNOVARTE carried out a qualitative study through interviews and focus groups with research and innovation institutions in different Latin American countries to measure the level of participation and knowledge of the COVID-19 Technology Access Pool (C-TAP) initiative of the World Health Organization (WHO).

The analysis also focused on identifying how technology transfer processes and licensing agreements are managed within the institutions, as well as their potential willingness to participate in collaborative technology platforms such as C-TAP. Research centers in Chile, Uruguay and Peru are among the institutions surveyed.

These interviews are part of the work the organization has done since its inception on access to healthcare and medicines, which since the 2020 pandemic has focused on strengthening mechanisms for technological collaboration to address inequities.

NGO INNOVARTE addresses this issue with the understanding that an innovation and development model based on collaboration between researchers, developers and producers is necessary to accelerate innovation processes and facilitate equitable access to key medical products through non-exclusive global licensing and technology transfer.
