The TRIPS Agreement and Access to Patented Medicines

  • Frank Müller-Langer

The Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (henceforth, TRIPS Agreement) is to date the broadest multilateral agreement on intellectual property (IP). In particular, the TRIPS Agreement is a result of the negotiations of the Uruguay Round (1986-1994), which finalized the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) by creating the World Trade Organization (WTO) on January 1, 1995.
