The TRIPS Flexibilities Database
The TRIPS Flexibilities Database contains instances when authorities have invoked, planned to invoke, or have been asked to invoke a TRIPS flexibility for public health reasons, in particular to assure access to medicines. The database tracks instances from 2001, the year in which the World Trade Organization adopted the Doha Declaration. It includes cases from low, middle, and high-income countries, and incorporates instances that are both executed and instances that are, pending, not executed or suspended.
It is a useful resource demonstrating that these flexibilities have been widely used to access medicines.
