There’s a leakage of information regarding the dark hidden agreements drafted in the TPP. Particularly, those defining the game rules for pharmaceutical products in Peru, Mexico, Malaysia and Vietnam. In these countries, the public health depends on generic versions of vaccines such as that of Hepatitis B. Some say that the TPP establishes exclusivity for the original manufacturers of those medicines, which later translates into a rise of the cost in public health. A representative of Peru has mentioned “sometimes you have to give up things, to win others” as voters anxiously wait for details of what had Peru conceded and what did it get in exchange. However, at the end of the day, none of this agreements will become effective until the lawmakers of each of the 12 countries ratify the deal.
