[e-drug] Oxfam policy briefing on the UN HLP

E-DRUG: Oxfam policy briefing on the UN HLP 
----------------------------------------------------------

In December 2015, the UN Secretary-General set up a High-Level Panel on Access 
to Medicines to ‘recommend solutions for remedying the policy incoherence 
between the justifiable rights of inventors, international human rights law, 
trade rules and public health in the context of health technologies’. Oxfam 
International Executive Director Winnie Byanyima is one of the 16 HLP members.

As the HLP issues its report, we commend the UN Development Programme 
secretariat, whose staff worked tirelessly to support the Panel’s work. 
Oxfam calls on the UN Secretary-General and all governments to start 
implementing the HLP’s recommendations without delay, and to ensure that 
gaps not fully addressed by the HLP should be discussed further.
