For many intellectual property rights (IPRs) and access to essential medicines advocates, you will agree with me that communicating our issues to the ordinary citizens is a herculian task. Not only is the language technical but also foreign. A good example is ‘patents’, ‘anticounterfeiting’ and ‘trademarks’. This comic booklet [PDF 4mb] was conceived and developed with the aim of addressing this particular challenge. It is based on a community setting in order that people can easily relate. I hope you enjoy.
