Resumen
This report consists of a collection of documents including a brief introduction, opening remarks, WHO perspectives on globalization and access to pharmaceuticals, a template of selected model indicators, and plans of actions from participating WHO Collaborating Centres. Particularly important are trends and rules relating to intellectual property, which may have a direct impact on the cost and availability of medicines. As increasing numbers of countries, especially developing countries, fall under the disciplines of the World Trade Organization's (WTO's) Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property (TRIPS) and otherwise expand their intellectual property protections, the debate over the public health impact of these protections has intensified. Views on the subject vary from those who believe increased global trade and enhanced intellectual property protections naturally create public health benefits to those who fear that the failure to prioritize public health concerns in the process of trade liberalization will inevitably lead to public health harms.

Note to the reader

The harmonized model of selected indicators included in this document represents an historical snapshot of the network’s endeavours to fulfil the mandate of the World Health Assembly in resolution WHA52.19 on the Revised Drug Strategy. It should be noted that these indicators are a work in progress. As such, the network is aware that the template does not yet contain indicators to monitor the impact of expanded intellectual property protections on the development of drugs for neglected diseases. Initial field tests by the Collaborating Centres should help identify any major problems with the indicator template: data that is not accessible, unclear or problematic methodologies for data collection, unclear definitions. After initial field testing, the network’s steering committee will review and revise the template as appropriate. After this initial revision, it will be important for the basic indicators to remain constant to ensure data consistency across time; but the steering committee will work to continuously clarify and revise the template based on accumulated experience. In addition, the WHO Collaborating Centre for Health Economics and Drug Policies in London is currently writing a manual for using the template.

This document is not a policy paper but a draft framework to collect data for further analysis. Comments are welcome.
