Public Health at Risk

A US Free Trade Agreement could threaten access to medicines in Thailand

New stringent drug patent and marketing rules being negotiated in a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between the US and Thailand would limit competition and reduce access to affordable medicines in Thailand.

Oxfam opposes an FTA with intellectual property rules that exceed the standards agreed at the World Trade Organization.
