I have blogged before about the great initiative TEDTalks, and here is one that I think might interest you. Ellen ’t Hoen is an independent medicines law and policy consultant. In 2009, she founded the Medicines Patent Pool at WHO/UNITAID, to accelerate the availability of low-cost HIV treatments, especially antiretroviral medicines, in developing countries through patent licensing.
She recently gave a TEDxTalk in Geneva, Switzerland, about how collaboration from drug companies can allow AIDS drugs to be made available at a much lower cost.
Here is her talk, entitled “Pool medical patents, save lives“.
