High-Performance Health Financing for Universal Health Coverage - Driving Sustainable, Inclusive Growth in the 21st Century

Report

Despite these multiple benefits, the majority of developing countries have yet to seize the growth and development opportunities offered by high-performing health financing. Major coverage gaps for essential health services persist; for those who receive services, coverage is too often ineffective, as the quality of services is low. To expand equitable coverage with both quality services and financial protection, the overall levels of health spending, the mix of revenue sources, pooling, and the efficient and equitable use of resources matter. This report identifies critical health financing constraints.

Exploring the Expansion of the Medicines Patent Pool’s Mandate to Patented Essential Medicines: A Feasibility Study of the Public Health Needs and Potential Impact

Case study

The Medicines Patent Pool (MPP) conducted a feasibility study to assess the public health need for – and the feasibility and potential public health impact of – expanding its mandate from HIV, tuberculosis and hepatitis C to patented essential medicines in other therapeutic areas. This includes medicines for different type of cancers (e.g. prostate, lung, multiple myeloma), sexual and reproductive health (e.g. heat-stable carbetocin), multiple sclerosis, cardiovascular diseases (e.g. the direct oral anticoagulants) and several new antibiotics.

MPP developed this feasibility study after the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Lancet Commission on Essential Medicines Policies, recommended the expansion of the MPP’s patent pooling model to all patented essential medicines, such as those included on the WHO Model List of Essential Medicines.
