Announcing a New Book from the South Centre


Intellectual Property, Human Rights and Access to Medicines, A Selected and Annotated Bibliography (Third Edition)


The South Centre is pleased to announce the publication of the NEW book Intellectual Property, Human Rights and Access to Medicines, A Selected and Annotated Bibliography (Third Edition) by Germán Velásquez, Carlos M. Correa and Vitor Ido of the South Centre.

The South Centre seeks to provide appropriate technical assistance and country support to developing countries, within comprehensive and coherent national IP strategies to promote implementation of the TRIPS Agreement that is consistent with the protection of public health and the promotion of access to medicines. This selected and annotated bibliography has been prepared to assist developing countries to implement IP policies and regulations consistent with development goals and public health principles. The growing volume of literature on the issue of IP, R&D, human rights and access to medicines can help developing countries to find the opportunities and room for manoeuvre to protect their citizens from the unhealthy environment created by international trade rules.

This bibliography is not an exhaustive list but it highlights some of the most pertinent works from the South views and perspectives. The selected references are a valuable instrument for those interested in promoting universal access to medical innovation.

The book can be downloaded for free at https://www.southcentre.int/book-by-the-south-centre-2020/
