On Tuesday July 20, a group of public interest organizations will file a
complaint alleging that the 'Special 301' program threatening sanctions
against countries for failing to adopt 'TRIPS-plus' intellectual
property rules for pharmaceuticals violates international human rights
obligations. The complaint will be filed with the Special Rapporteur on
the Right to Health, Anand Grover. 

A live press conference will take place at the Media Center at the
International AIDS Conference 2010, Vienna, at 12:00 noon Vienna time.
