Successful interregional collaboration in the field of patents and health
Switzerland introduced two proposals concerning the field of patents and health, together with Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Canada, to the WIPO Standing Committee on the Law of Patents (SCP). Both proposals were taken up in the committee's Work Program on 6 December, resulting in a successful interregional collaboration between countries with frequently opposing stances in the often controversially discussed field of patents and health. This is an encouraging step for Switzerland and its co-sponsors.
The SCP is responsible for normative work in the field of international patent law. The complexities involved concerning the issue of patents and health is regularly discussed in the SPC.
