Who We Are

The Medicines Patent Pool (MPP) is a United Nations-backed public health organisation working to increase access to HIV, hepatitis C and tuberculosis treatments in low- and middle-income countries.

MedsPaL provides information on the patent and licensing status of selected HIV, hepatitis C and tuberculosis medicines in low- and middle-income countries.

Transparency in the MPP
