With chapters in more than 15 countries all over the world, UAEM students work to influence policies of universities, to ensure that products of their biomedical research, are made available to people in middle and low income countries.
The current biomedical Research and Development (R&D) system serves profits over people. Despite the global crisis of high drug prices, R&D investments continue to focus on medicines that can be sold at high prices leaving much needed medicines undeveloped. In the last 15 years, various R&D initiatives have appeared in response to this failure. Some offer true alternative models of R&D driven by health needs, while others continue business as usual. UAEM’s RE:Route mapping provides a qualitative review of the alternative biomedical R&D initiatives around the world that are active or proposed. While this mapping covers a significant number of potential alternatives, it is evident that the need for fundamental change is as urgent as ever and universities can play a key role. Join us in bringing this dialogue forward!
