Access to Medicines in the Trans-Pacific Partnership

As negotiators for the Trans-Pacific Partnership talks meet in Lima, Peru today, the United States continues to advance its innovative proposals on access to medicines in TPP countries. The brand-new TEAM (Trade Enhancing Access to Medicines) approach for TPP would not only allow access to medicines, but drive such access in places where it's most needed through new, innovative policy ideas not seen in any previous trade agreement.
