The 30 August WTO General Council Decision, WT/L/540, “Implementation of paragraph 6 of the Doha Declaration on the TRIPS Agreement and public health”

Commonwealth Heads of Government at Aso Rock welcomed the 30 August 2003 WTO agreement on affordable drugs and called for its interpretation and implementation in a manner that makes appropriate drugs available at low cost to poor countries. Heads of Government recognised: “that diseases such as HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis are not only health problems but are also development issues…. [and called] for reforms at the national level to create effective health delivery systems, as well as adequate external support to achieve this.”
