[e-drug] Patent Searches on Essential Medicines in Developing Countries

E-DRUG: Patent Searches on Essential Medicines in Developing Countries
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear all, 

UNDP has released and launched a new publication:
  
Patent Information and Transparency: A Methodology for Patent Searches on 
Essential Medicines in Developing Countries

http://www.undp.org/content/undp/en/home/librarypage/hiv-aids/a-methodology-for-patent-searches-on-essential-medicines-in-deve.html
 

The actual report can be downloaded from:

http://www.undp.org/content/dam/undp/library/hivaids/English/Patent%20Information%20and%20Transparency.pdf
 

The main aim of the present document is twofold: 

* to set out the technical aspects of the rationale for the Methodology
* to describe how it should be developed as a tool for stakeholders, including 
health authorities and procurement agencies (which may not necessarily have 
extensive legal and patent expertise) in developing countries to quickly search 
for patents on medicines, from publicly available (and free) sources of 
information.
