Pool patents to get COVID vaccines and drugs to all

We call on pharmaceutical companies to contribute to a pool of patents set up by the World Health Organization (WHO). That will speed up the manufacture of generic, affordable COVID-19 vaccines and treatments while protecting firms’ incentives to invest in future research. The WHO’s COVID-19 Technology Access Pool has so far received no contributions from industry.
