Using practical examples and patent landscapes, this report attempts to set out the various strategies and options available to facilitate local production. The report describes the options available to countries with a generic industry to design an intellectual property system that is favourable for local production and potentially for public health. The report contains detailed patent information on
•       Atazanavir
•       Raltegravir
•       Imatinib
•       Sitagliptin
•       Pegylated interferon alfa-2a
