Universities Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM) - an advocacy branch of Global Health SIG

Universities Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM) is a student advocacy group with chapters at over twenty-five major research universities in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. UAEM is dedicated to increasing access to life-saving medications in low- and middle-income countries by campaigning for universities to acknowledge their role in global public health. The goal of asking universities to recognize their social responsibility with respect to global health is to improve access to health goods in developing countries by changing technology licensing policies between universities and the industrial sector, including pharmaceuticals.
