Topics: ,

The new website Medicines Law & Policy, launched recently by leading specialists on access to medicines and intellectual property law, provides policy and legal analysis, best practice models and other information that can be used by governments, non-governmental organisations, product development initiatives, funding agencies, UN agencies and others working to ensure the availability of effective, safe and affordable medicines for all.

The section Tools contains examples of tools countries and others looking to increase access to medicines can use to overcome patent barriers when needed. To guide people through the complicated process of deciding what tool may be appropriate, a useful flowchart has been added.
