MSF recommends the following actions to ensure access and equitable allocation of COVID-19 medical tools:

  *   Adopt binding and enforceable measures
  *   Encourage Member States to explore and use fully the existing policy and legal measures, including flexibilities under the TRIPS Agreement and the Doha Declaration on TRIPS and Public Health
  *   Ensure full transparency of all R&D funding agreements with explicit and binding obligations
