The Medicines Patent Pool (MPP) is a public health organisation working to increase access to, and facilitate the development of, life-saving medicines for low- and middle-income countries, especially for HIV, hepatitis C and tuberculosis treatment. To date, we have secured licences for thirteen antiretrovirals, three hepatitis C direct-acting antivirals, one tuberculosis medicine and an HIV technology platform.

We have sublicensed to many product developers and generic manufacturers to develop and supply medicines in developing countries. Access our “Products licensed” page.
