Medical - Medical: Pharmaceuticals / Patent rights
Spanish term or phrase: IDS; IDS Organismos Internacionales
This abbreviation is used repeatedly in a document on drugs for developing countries prepared by the Intergovernmental Working Group on Public Health, Innovation, and Intellectual Property.

They say simply "IDS" or "IDS Organismos Internacionales"

This makes me think it's a group of international organizations concerned with drugs. Help!

Institute of Development Studies

In a Portuguese document [http://foruminclusao.no.sapo.pt/RCM_192_2003.pdf], I found this:
IDS - Instituto para o Desenvolvimento Social.
I'm fairly certain it is a reference to the www.ids.ac.uk organization.

Is the document you're translating on social development or is it oriented toward science/medicine?
