Background of the debate -- Patent law -- Access to medicine as a human right -- Conflict between patents and access to medicine -- Access to medicine as a human right in the WTO order
"This book discusses both patent law and international human rights law in great depth, distinguishing between obligations under different human rights instruments and including a highly readable introduction into both areas of law. It then explains the concept of conflict between legal regimes and why patent law and human rights law are in conflict."--Jacket
