Universities and publicly funded research institutions will be part of the solution to the access to medicines crisis by promoting medical innovation in the public interest and ensuring that all people regardless of income have access to essential medicines and other health-related technologies.
As a private non-profit organization rooted in a movement of university students, UAEM aims to
- promote access to medicines for people in developing countries by changing norms and practices around university patenting and licensing
- ensure that university medical research meets the needs of the majority of the world’s population
- empower students to respond to the access and innovation crisis
