TRIPS: TRIPS AND PUBLIC HEALTH
TRIPS and public health: dedicated webpage for
30 August 2003 WTO decision on the Implementation of
Paragraph 6 of the Doha Declaration on the TRIPS Agreement and Public
Health calls for the establishment of a dedicated page on the WTO
website, in particular to make publicly available certain notifications
made by Members in using the “Paragraph 6” system established under the Decision.
These notifications can be accessed through this webpage.
An amendment to the TRIPS Agreement, under a 6
December 2005 decision, will replace the 30 August 2003 decision when it
is accepted by two thirds of the membership, but the notification
requirements will not change.
