Trends in Compulsory Licensing of Pharmaceuticals Since the Doha Declaration: A Database Analysis

An interesting analysis of the Complusory Licenses issued for Pharmaceuticals around the world since 1995.

Aside from HIV/AIDS, few CL episodes involved communicable disease, and none occurred in least-developed or low-income countries.
