Who Owns the AIDS Drugs? Brazil Has a Forum to Discuss the Matter.

A forum this week in Teresina, state of PiauÀ­, in the Brazilian Northeast, will discuss the ownership (intellectual and industrial) of drugs used to treat HIV/AIDS and other neglected infectious diseases.

The meeting is called Fórum de Propriedade Intelectual e Tratamento do HIV/Aids e Doenças Infecciosas Negligenciadas.

The forum is being coordinated by Brazil’s AIDS/Sexually Transmitted Disease Program, which is housed in the Ministry of Health and is part of the 42nd Congress of the Brazilian Society of Tropical Medicine.

Representatives of the World Health Organization, the UN Development Program, the Carnegie Council on Ethics and International Affairs, Doctors Without Borders and the Institute of International Commercial Rights and Development will participate.
