I just added this comment to the blog:

The proposed text on de-linkage, open knowledge and sustainable
financing signals a new level of engagement by WHO member states on
new models for innovation. What is missing are references to
technology transfer or capacity building in developing countries, a
willingness to look at binding commitments on R&D financing, or
references to the work of the CEWG. But the text does show
considerable movement as regards delinkage and open collaborative R&D
models, and it creates momentum and opportunities to advance all
reform ideas.
