[e-drug] Use of TRIPS flexibilities: Carlos Correa in Bulletin WHO

E-DRUG: Use of TRIPS flexibilities: Carlos Correa in Bulletin WHO
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

http://www.who.int/bulletin/volumes/96/3/17-206896.pdf?ua=1

Martin Khor, Executive Director of the South Centre, noted that in this WHO 
Bulletin
editorial  Professor Carlos Correa explains some of these TRIPS
flexibilities and makes the point that they are not widely used because of
lack of knowledge on how to use them but also due to external pressures
being put on those countries that use or try to use them.  Thus a lesson
that can be drawn from this editorial is that civil society and academics
can play a bigger role in explaining the flexibilities and in countering
moves by drug companies or governments that act on their behalf, so that
the flexibilities can be more widely used.

Thank you Martin
