Who We Are

The Medicines Patent Pool (MPP) is a United Nations-backed public health organisation working to increase access to HIV, hepatitis C and tuberculosis treatments in low- and middle-income countries.

MedsPaL

The Medicines Patents & Licences Database
The MPP’s patents and licences database, MedsPaL, is an information 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 the MPP website. This is unprecedented in the pharmaceutical field.
