Access to Medicines Tracker

Each quarter, we monitor the progress of our generic partners in developing, filing and selling MPP’s licensed medicines, in countries where access could not have been possible without our work.

To date, MPP has signed agreements with 15 patent holders for 13 HIV antiretrovirals, one HIV technology platform, three hepatitis C direct-acting antivirals, a tuberculosis treatment, two long-acting technologies, two experimental oral antiviral treatments for COVID-19 and 12 COVID-19 technologies. 54 generic manufacturers and product developers have now signed MPP sublicensing agreements.

Overview of all licensing and sublicensing agreements

Generic competition is making a difference in fostering lower prices and improving treatment coverage. Generic partners have distributed 49.71 million patient-years of HIV and hepatitis C products, saving international procurers USD 920 million (January 2012-December 2020).

A slide deck highlighting progress of MPP’s generic partners in developing, manufacturing and supplying MPP-licensed medicines, is available. It is updated twice a year (last update: April 2022 – data as of December 2021)
