Product Synopsis

This up-to-date book examines pharmaceutical development, access to medicines, and the protection of public health in the context of two fundamental changes that the global political economy has undergone since the 1970s, the globalization of trade and production and the increased harmonization of national regulations on intellectual property rights. With authors from eleven different countries presenting case studies of national experiences in Africa, Asia and the Americas, the book analyzes national strategies to promote pharmaceutical innovation, while at the same time assuring widespread access to medicines through generic pharmaceutical production and generic pharmaceutical importation. The expert chapters focus on patents as well as an array of regulatory instruments, including pricing and drug registration policies. Presenting in-depth analysis and original empirical research, this book will strongly appeal to academics and students of intellectual property, international health, international political economy, international development and law.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS MEET PUBLIC HEALTH WORLDWIDE An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers Published by Edward Elgar, this book will appeal strongly to a wide range of professionals, academics and students with interest in and involvement in public health issues worldwide, specifically the pharmaceutical industry. As the subtitle indicates, the focus here pertains to access to drugs in developing countries, an issue which has raised its profile in the public consciousness with increasing frequency, especially of late. To cite just one example, the book’s four expert editors point out that post-Apartheid governments in South Africa have struggled with meeting the dual objectives of increasing local production of essential medicines, whilst reducing prices. Bearing all this in mind -- including the ongoing controversies centering on branded versus generic pharmaceutical products -- the pharmaceutical industry, which is concentrated mainly in only six countries, relies very much on patents and trademarks and is therefore heavily dependent on intellectual property rights, patents in particular. One assertion made by the editors, however -- all of whom hail from top universities worldwide, including the LSE and McGill -- is that the ongoing harmonization of IP rights globally over the last three or four decades, has meant that the pharmaceutical industry generally, has increased its presence in developing countries, both with respect to production and distribution. The 13 international contributors to this study – including the four editors – examine all pertinent aspects of this fascinating field, including the latest developments across at least eleven different countries. Case studies are presented of national experiences in Africa, Asia and the Americas, notably Canada. Pricing and drug registration policies, as well as patents and other regulatory instruments are systematically and methodically examined. Interestingly, the book is the ultimate result of a collaborative project entitled ‘Globalisation and Public Health in Developing Countries’ funded by the Foundation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme in Paris. For those involved in healthcare disciplines – and that includes lawyers with pharmaceutical clients – the book is timely, topical, and packed with carefully researched information which puts a number of major issues relating to pharmaceuticals in perspective. Of great value to researchers are the copious footnotes and extensive bibliographies which follow most of the articles. If you’re a student, academic, or practitioner in related IP issues, particularly international health, international political economy, or international development and law, this book certainly provides you with an impressive mine of information if you find yourself having to argue your corner on any number of legal, economic and ethical issues in this complex field of study.
