Abstract

"One by one, countries are trading away their people's health in 'free trade' agreements with the United States. These countries are being pushed to accept extremely restrictive intellectual property provisions that could put an end to competition from generic medicine producers and to countries' ability to make use of existing safeguards against patent abuse."
