Chair: Sigrun Mogedal, Norway
Organiser: Medicines Patent Pool Foundation
Increased access to HIV treatment over the last decade has allowed millions of people in developing countries to lead longer, healthier lives. But millions more still wait for access and the world has committed to having 15 million people on treatment by 2015. To reach the target and go beyond, the world needs access to more affordable treatment and formulations adapted to specific developing country needs, such as paediatric formulations. This event will focus on access and innovation challenges with a special focus on the role of intellectual property rights, the Medicines Patent Pool and other approaches aimed at improving access to drugs and promoting innovation in HIV medicines that meet developing country needs.
