Abstract: With the aim of technology innovation, transfer and capacity building, the World Trade Organisation established a new regime for harmonizing the laws related to intellectual property which included certain flexibilities in the nature of compulsory licensing and parallel imports. At the same time a progressive concept of development which includes a mandate for Member countries to adopt a “right to health” within the economic, social and cultural rights framework emerged. The Agreement on Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights required Member States to include relevant amendments to the existing laws within its policy space to ensure adherence to the minimum agreed criteria of intellectual property protection.
