    A recognition of relevance constitutes the decision of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) to award its "Medal for Inventors" to the authors of four Cuban anticovid-19 vaccines.

    She explained that the stimulation is due to their contributions to national economic and technological development and that Daren Tang (Singapore), Director General of WIPO, a UN agency based in Geneva, Switzerland, will deliver them shortly.

    She announced that Tang would travel to Havana at the head of a delegation from his group to present the medals next Monday to the main creators of Cuban anticovid-19 vaccines.

    Despite the sickening siege of United States Governments for more than 60 years and increasingly accentuated, 10 products of Cuban science have the Gold Medal of the World Intellectual Property Organization, from the first in 1989 to the last in 2015. The history of the latter organization dates back to 1883 with the Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property and in 1974 it joined the United Nations as a specialized agency.

    The Cuban Office of Industrial Property confers the registration of Industrial Property rights in Cuba and provides specialized scientific-technological services, in order to contribute to the development of science, technology, innovation, national and foreign investment, industry and commerce.
