Countries Must Fix Critical Access to Medicines Flaws in Trans-Pacific Trade Pact
Negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)—a far-reaching trade agreement between 11 Pacific Rim countries—continue to be shrouded in secrecy, but leaked copies of the agreement reveal that the United States is demanding the most harmful package of intellectual property protections ever proposed for a trade agreement with developing countries.
These rules would make it extremely difficult for generic competitors to enter the market, keeping prices unaffordably high, with devastating public health consequences.
Follow us throughout the week as negotiations for the TPP restart in Lima, Peru, tomorrow. 
TAKE ACTION: Tell Members of Congress to Protect Access to Lifesaving Medicins
