Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a trade agreement negotiated between the US and 11 other Pacific Rim nations: Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam.
The TPP was signed in February 2016 after years of secretive negotiations, but it has not yet been ratified or implemented in any of the member countries. The TPP has been repeatedly referred to as “the worst trade deal ever for access to medicines”.
MSF remains extremely concerned about the inclusion of dangerous provisions in the TPP and other trade agreements that would dismantle public health safeguards enshrined in international law and restrict access to price-lowering generic medicines for millions of people.
