Delivering on the Pledge: Global Access to Medicines, WTO Rules, and Reforming Canada’s Law on Compulsory Licensing for Export – McGill International Journal of Sustainable Development Law & Policy

This article — published in the McGill International Journal of Sustainable Development Law & Policy, Volume 3, Issue 1 — outlines the relevance of WTO rules on intellectual property to the global inequity in access to medicines and reviews key developments at the WTO underlying such legislation. It discusses the key features, positive and negative, of Canada’s law, and the two initiatives to date to use it. Finally, it presents reforms that would streamline the legislation, making it more likely to meet the needs of both developing country purchasers and potential generic exporters.
