Letter to Thailand’s Prime Minister and Minister of Public Health re: The Legality and Propriety of Thailand’s Public Non-Commercial Use Licenses for AIDS, Heart-Disease, and Cancer Medicines

“We are a group of international legal experts who understand that the Government of Thailand is reviewing the legality and adverse trade impacts of seven compulsory licenses on AIDS, heart disease, and cancer medicines issued in Thailand since November 2006. We are writing to assure you that the licenses are fully lawful not only under Thai law but also under the WTO Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights [TRIPS Agreement], and that it would be erroneous to use unsupportable allegations of illegality to revoke, suspend, or fail to implement the challenged licenses.”
