Esteban Burrone, Head of Policy at the Medicines Patent Pool, wrote a chapter in The Cambridge Handbook of Public-Private Partnerships, Intellectual Property Governance, and Sustainable Development where he discusses patent pooling in public health and the case of the MPP.
See a description of chapter five below:
Public health patent pools represent an innovative type of Public-Private Partnership that can contribute to improving universal health coverage, which is an important focus of the Sustainable Development Goals. In the case of the Medicines Patent Pool, patent pooling enables the management of privately-held intellectual property rights in the public interest. It accelerates access to affordable medicines in low- and middle-income countries and facilitates the development of new formulations.
