Unitaid expands its work on access to medicines

Unitaid is pleased to announce that its Executive Board has approved three new projects that aim to safeguard public health by increasing access to affordable medicines.

The project implementers, selected through a competitive process, are International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC), South Centre, and Third World Network.

The investments will help expand access to more affordable medicines, a fundamental aspect of the right to health and essential to reaching the UN’s sustainable development goals on health.

The grants stem from a 2017 Unitaid call for proposals to help countries use flexibilities and provisions under global intellectual property agreements and laws to improve access to affordable medicines in order to safeguard public health.

Unitaid will invest a total of US$ 22 million in the three projects, in addition to its ongoing support to the Medicines Patent Pool.
