    Abstract: 二十世紀的科技轉變使科學在許多科技領域得到了史無前例的發展。尤其是在醫療以及藥物這兩個領域,治療愛滋病、氣管炎以及瘧疾的藥物和基因研究的新發現都代表著在這兩領域的重大突破。這些戲劇性的進展使開發中國家對於能夠得到妥善治療的願望燃起了新的希望。可是到現在為止對於開發中國家的人民而言事實並非如此,可治療及可預防的疾病每年還是奪取數以百萬人民的生命。如今即使有了在科學以及科技上的重大突破,在世界上還是存在著令人無法接受的不平等待遇,尤其是開發中國家與已開發國家的人民可獲得的醫療品質及水準。

    The technological transformation of the 20th Century had the effect of advancing the frontiers of science in many technological fields. In the medical and pharmaceutical field, in particular, major technological breakthroughs have been witnessed including the mapping of the human genome, antiretroviral (ARV) therapy for the treatment of HIV/AIDS and the second line treatments for tuberculosis and malaria. These dramatic developments have provided increasing hope for the realization of the right to health in the developing world. For the people in these regions, however, the reality on the ground is the opposite; treatable and preventable diseases continue to kill millions a year.

    Today, despite significant scientific and technological developments, there continue to exist unacceptable inequalities in the health status of people between developed and developing countries as well as within developing countries. In this context, Latin America and the Caribbean, being a part of the developing world is also facing great challenges. Access to essential medicines is critical in this part of the world, it is important to understand what is being done to resist intellectual property rights abuse in the pharmaceutical sector. The objective of this study is to explain the obstacles Latin America and the Caribbean are facing in using the flexibilities inherent in TRIPS to seek access of medicines for their citizens, and also suggest some recommendations on how to overcome these obstacles through a south to south regional framework.
