Abstract

Paragraph 6 of the Doha Declaration recognising the need to ensure adequate and affordable supplies of needed drugs in those countries which did not have manufacturing capacities while protecting the rights of patent holders had directed the TRIPS Council to find an expeditious solution. Such a solution came as a desperate agreement forged on the eve of the Cancun meeting. What is the content of the agreement and how does it impact on developing countries?
