UNAIDS Urges Trade Negotiators To Ensure Agreements Do Not Impede Access To Medicines

UNAIDS: UNAIDS calls on trade negotiators to uphold governments’ commitments to public health and access to medicines
“…Various trade agreements are currently in negotiation and concerns have been expressed that they could involve so-called ‘TRIPS-plus’ measures such as broadening patentability criteria and extending patent duration. … If the global AIDS response is to attain the 90-90-90 treatment target by 2020 — 90 percent of people living with HIV knowing their status, 90 percent of people who know their status on treatment, and 90 percent attaining viral suppression — HIV treatment must be accessible and scale-up must be financially sustainable” (7/28).
