OPENING REMARKS BY MARK HEYWOOD AND VUYISEKA DUBULA TO GLOBAL ACTIVIST MEETING ON THE MEDICINES PATENT POOL (MPP) AND VOLUNTARY LICENSES

We are joined today by over 40 activists from all parts of the world, including organisations of people living with HIV, MSF, as well as individual experts and lawyers who have fought for the rights of people to access affordable quality medicines. In this room is the residue of experience from the many successful battles that changed the landscape of the response to HIV and in doing so has prevented millions of deaths.
