Who We Are

The Medicines Patent Pool (MPP) is a United Nations-backed public health organisation working to increase access to, and facilitate the development of, life-saving medicines for low- and middle-income countries.

MedsPaL

The Medicines Patents & Licences Database
The MPP’s patents and licences database, MedsPaL, is a resource that provides information on the intellectual property status of selected HIV, hepatitis C, tuberculosis and other patented essential medicines in low- and middle-income countries.

Transparency

All MPP licences are publicly available in their entirety on our website. This is unprecedented in the pharmaceutical field.
