THS MSF's Decision

Pfizer owns patents to multiple life saving medications. The humanitarian medical organization, Doctors Without Borders (MSF) has been advocating for Pfizer and other pharmaceutical companies to release their rights to these patents. Pfizer has continuously refused to cede these patents. However, in 2016 Pfizer offered MSF the pneumonia vaccine (PCV). MSF declined the donation, this resulted in over 50,000 deaths that year because of pneumonia.

Hükümet savunur ki; Patent sahipleri icatlarının hangi alanlarda kullanılabileceği üzerinde söz sahibi olmalıdır.
