Your Excellency,

On behalf of civil society movements and NGOs working on health and human rights, we would like to extend our sincere congratulations to you on your appointment as Minister of Public Health of Thailand.

Your Excellency, as you may realize, the fact that many Thai people still do not have access to a number of life saving essential medicines is one of our major concerns. Indeed, the right to the highest attainable standard of health is enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as well as the current Constitution of Thailand, and access to essential medicines plays a critical role in fulfilling this right. However, the privatization of medicine in the form of patent protection is a major obstacle that currently blocks the path to putting in place a plan that can rapidly expand access to life saving treatments. While patents reward years of research and development, they can at the same time increase the public burden by maintaining unacceptably high prices for some essential medicines.

May we take this opportunity to ask Your Excellency for the position of the Ministry of Public Health and the new government on the policies to be implemented to ensure an equitable increase in access to essential medicines for the people of Thailand. In particular we would appreciate clarification of the present government's stance on Compulsory Licensing, which was used legally by the previous government to significantly increase access to anti-retroviral treatment for people living with HIV.

We consider Compulsory Licensing as an important and effective legislative measure to ensure improve access to treatment for a number of chronic and life threatening diseases. It has been proven that the use of Compulsory Licensing helps to create a balance by limiting exclusive patent rights and upholding the governments constitutional responsibility to promote equality and protect public health.

It is also important to note that the National Health Security Office's use of low cost generic antiretroviral medicines imported under Compulsory License has lead to significant budgetary savings. These savings have allowed the National Health Security Office to provide antiretroviral medicines with fewer side effects and an improved monitoring system to large numbers of HIV/AIDS patients. Moreover these savings have also allow the National Health Security Office to extend its benefit packages to those with other chronic disease such as renal failure.

Your Excellency, to address the challenge of improving access to essential medicines we first need commitment from the government. We are certainly counting on this government to build this commitment as well as to develop new strategies. While realizing and understanding that we need to think of other systematic approaches as part of a long term strategy to increase equitability of access to medicines, compulsory licensing should remain as part of this strategy.

At this moment many patients with cancer are awaiting the importation of affordable generic versions of the three expensive patented anticancer medicines for which the previous government recently issued compulsory licenses. We would like to call on Your Excellency to ensure these people and other like them no longer suffer the catastrophic consequences of the excessively high price of some life saving patent protected medicines.

Your Excellency, we are a cooperative network with sincere attitudes, and are willing to share any knowledge and experience with the Ministry of Public Health in order to reach our ultimate goal of an increased and equitable access to medicines.

Please accept, Your Excellency, the assurances of our highest consideration.
