Dear colleagues,

I would like to share two position papers recently published by the Working
Group on Intellectual Property (GTPI, acronym in Portuguese), in Brazil.

The first one reffers to the new Test and Treat policy annouced by
Brazilian AIDS Programm and at the same time welcomes the policy and raises
concerns about the universal programm sustainability.

The second one is about the atazanavir voluntary license signed by
Brazilian public laboratory Farmanguinhos and the transnational company
BMS. It brings some worrisome provision identified by GTPI and a brief
evaluation on the contract terms.

Comments and thoughts are very welcome.

Thank you,
