Voluntary patent pooling
Venue: by invitation only
The UNAIDS Fast-Track approach aims to achieve ambitious targets by 2020. Ensuring the success of the Sustainable Development Goals, including the target of ending the AIDS epidemic, will require global solidarity and partnerships. Over the past five years, the Medicines Patent Pool has contributed to the rapid HIV treatment scale-up by accelerating access to affordable HIV treatments in a large number of developing countries. The event will analyse—from the perspective of governments, international organisations and communities—some of the Medicines Patent Pool’s successes to date and some of the remaining challenges to ensure that new treatments are taken up in-country, contributing to scale-up and improving treatment outcomes.
