New to the world of intellectual property and access to medicines?
We have selected a small range of resources, tools and videos that we recommend for individuals and civil society organizations embarking on work in this field. We know this topic can be overwhelming, especially with the huge range of materials, reports and articles out there – so we have chosen this selection carefully.
In the coming weeks and months, we will add some resources of our own – including a glossary to explain new words, terms and acronyms. Do return to this section from time to see what’s new.
