Commitment to Action

Making UC-Discovered Medicines Affordable Worldwide

Commitment by

Universities Allied for Essential Medicines

In 2011, Universities Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM) committed to encouraging University of California (UC) students to negotiate and advocate for new research licensing policies for UC medical research. UAEM will promote new research licensing polices at UC institutions so that whenever UC licenses UC-discovered treatments for HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases to private companies for commercial production, the UC system will also enable low-priced production and distribution in the developing world. By encouraging students to raise this issue on campus, UAEM hopes to change the way the UC system licenses its medical research by ensuring the UC system helps patients in developing countries afford life-saving UC-discovered medicines.
