Universities Allied for Essential Medicines at Berkeley
Purpose: UAEM is an initiative linking members of universities in the US, the UK, and Canada who are concerned that the research, patenting and licensing policies of academic institutions are restricting access to medicines in poor countries. As members of these institutions, we believe that universities have an opportunity and a responsibility to improve access to affordable medicines throughout the world. We therefore advocate policy changes at our universities that will increase the ability of people in developing countries to access medicines that are developed using university research.
