UNITAID Continues Funding for Pool; Paediatric AIDS

At a meeting in Paris on 12-13 December, UNITAID decided to continue funding the Medicines Patent Pool for the next four years. UNITAID support was critical to the Pool’s creation and will continue to be critical going forward. The Pool is pleased at this endorsement of its success in its first year of existence, and in the continued backing from UNITAID. The Pool will use these funds to continue its work on its core business – licensing patents on needed HIV medicines in order to make more affordable, appropriate treatments more widely available to people living with HIV around the world.
