Universities Allied for Essential Medicinces (UAEM)

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

Student members use their unique intellectual sophistication, rigour and integrity to fight for increased innovation as well as access to medicines and health-related technologies for all.

UAEM promotes research on neglected diseases – those diseases predominantly affecting people who are too poor to constitute a market attractive to private-sector R&D investment. UAEM is working with universities to remove barriers preventing or hindering them from embarking on neglected disease research, lobbying universities to increase the amount of research conducted on neglected diseases, and educating students and faculty about neglected diseases.
