Description

Thomas Pogge, Yale University, Connecticut

Kim Rubenstein, Australian National University, Canberra 

This portrait of the global debate over patent law and access to essential medicines focuses on public health concerns about HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, the SARS virus, influenza, and diseases of poverty. The essays explore the diplomatic negotiations and disputes in key international fora, such as the World Trade Organization, the World Health Organization and the World Intellectual Property Organization. Drawing upon international trade law, innovation policy, intellectual property law, health law, human rights and philosophy, the authors seek to canvass policy solutions which encourage and reward worthwhile pharmaceutical innovation while ensuring affordable access to advanced medicines. A number of creative policy options are critically assessed, including the development of a Health Impact Fund, prizes for medical innovation, the use of patent pools, open-source drug development and forms of 'creative capitalism'. 

  • Connects international and public law, extending each discipline's understanding of the other 
  • Explores institutional mechanisms that would create additional incentives to develop essential medicines while also ensuring real access to the new products even for the world's poorest populations 
  • Provides policy impetus to those working in the area of global health
