Excerpt
Introduction Since 1999, the issue of globalization, patents and drugs has undergone a dramatic evolution that has placed it at the top of the public agenda. Under this spotlight, the debate has taken on a higher degree of complexity, often resulting in a confusion in terrns, positions and consequences. Issues that had not been traditionally considered in the analysis have grown in importance as HIV/AIDS was transformed from a public health care challenge into a global pandemic requiring urgent responses, but ones which were too costly to implement. Even though we are on the verge of eradicating polio, largely thanks to international cooperation, forgotten illnesses continue to kill thousands of people reopening debates on the issues involved. Approaches that some years ago were not considered suitable for the public health domain are currently being vindicated due to their comprehensiveness and adaptability.
