President Obama is expected to push for finalization of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) in tonight’s State of the Union address. MSF is deeply concerned that unless damaging provisions are removed before negotiations are finalized, the TPP agreement could become the most harmful trade pact ever for access to medicines in developing countries.

Damaging intellectual property rules in the U.S.-led Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) would give pharmaceutical companies longer monopolies over brand name drugs. Companies would be able to charge high prices for longer periods of time. And it would be much harder for generic companies to produce cheaper drugs that are vital to people’s health. We need your help:http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/take-action/tpp/

The day-to-day purpose of the project here is to heal kids like George of their severe acute malnutrition, so that they avoid stunting or, worse, death, and you could no more quantify this benefit than you could put a price on a human life. But MSF is here with an additional, even more ambitious goal: if we can help kids like George with a model of community based nutritional care tailor-made specifically for the Bihar State, India setting, then we might just be able to convince the government to adopt this model of care, scale it up and then help every sick kid like George.
