UNITAID Patent Pool for Medicines

In 2007 Medécins sans Frontières (MSF, Doctors Without Borders) and Knowledge Ecology International (KEI) presented a proposal for UNITAID to host a medicines patent pool.

In July 2008 the UNITAID Board supported the principle of establishing a patent pool for medicines to provide patients in low and middle income countries with increased access to more appropriate and lower price medicines.
