New Book - Negotiating health

Pedro Roffe (ed.)
Negotiating health: intellectual property and access to medicines
Earthscan, 2005, 362.1 ROF

Published by Earthscan, Negotiating health is an analysis on the post-2005 world of pharmaceuticals, and a discussion of how action may be taken to ensure that access to medicines is not sacrificed to corporate attempts to protect business interests. This book contributes greatly to the debate over health in developing countries and comes at a time when significant questions are being asked of WTO policy and regulations in terms of allowing the poorest nations access to affordable medicines, for the treatment of diseases such as AIDS and malaria.

Negotiating health is related to the RSA project - Adelphi Charter .
