How Do Intellectual Property Law(IPL) and International Trade Agreements(ITA) Affect Global Health Specifically Access to Antiretroviral(ART) Therapy in developing countries?
RESEARCH PROPOSAL STATMENT:
Intellectual Property Law (IPL) and International Trade Agreement (ITA) directly affect the global health environment. Thus, the need of doing this study mainly in the area of access of Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) is important because there are several clashes between World Trade Organizations (WTO) members and health care activists regarding the provision of ART. This problem is important enough to study because it has become a concerning issue for governments and pharmaceutical companies to have patents and strongest IP law for HIV related therapies, products and drug manufacturing techniques. These IP laws and ITA are important to manage the delivery of drugs in developing countries in an effective and lawful manner. Due to all these issues, this study is important and there is a need to execute strong provisions related to IP laws and ITA in different countries of the world.
