About the Course:

The astounding mortality rates for HIV/AIDS in the developing world, despite the demonstrated capacities of antiretroviral medicines have focused international attention on the issue of access to medicines. Indeed, as of late 2003, more than 98% of Africans affected by AIDS and more than 93% of those in urgent need worlwide lacked access to anti-retroviral drug treatment. But the problem is not limited to HIV/AIDS: 1/3 of the world’s population lacks regular access to essential medicines. This course will introduce students to obstacles to essential medicine access in developing world nations and the role of intellectual property policies and universities in solving these problems. This course is sponsored by Universities Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM), a group of students, faculty and researchers at 30 universities in the US and Canada, who are dedicated to increasing access to essential medicines, especially for those who cannot afford live-saving therapy.
