NOVEMBER 2012: The Medicines Patent Pool has issued a new working paper detailing its evolving priority list of antiretroviral medicines.
This working paper is a living document and the Pool welcomes and encourages comments and input. The November 2012 edition is the Pool’s second, and builds on work done in the first edition released September 2011.

The original medicines targeted for inclusion in the Pool were chosen based on an analysis of the World Health Organization and UNITAID overview of “priority missing essential medicines for HIV” from March 2009. Work has been ongoing – and will continue – to revise this original list in accordance with the latest scientific knowledge.
