Pharmaceuticals and Intellectual Property
x TRIPS came into effect at the end of the Uruguay Round of WTO in 1994
x A lot of attention focused on antiretrovirals
o Expensive at that time due to patents
x Pharma is a heavily subsidized industry through government programs.
x Parallel importing possibility of buying a said drug everywhere but at
different prices around the world.
o People can go outside of the country and buy it for cheaper
somewhere else.
x Generic production (compulsory licensing) when patents are broken or
expired.
o In emergency situations, the government can break the patent and
create the drug for cheaper. (ie: cheaper version of
Tylenol/Advil/etc.)
WTO members have to adhere to TRIPS
x Possibility of other bilateral trade agreements (ie: NAFTA)

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
