Universities Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM)

This organization is currently inactive, if you are interested in restarting this group please contact Erika Reardon at ereardon@bu.edu.

As a global student organization, Universities Allied for Essential Medicines aims to:
– promote access to medicines for people in developing countries by changing norms and practices around university patenting and licensing – ensure that university medical research meets the needs of the majority of the world’s population – empower students to respond to the access and innovation crisis.  The BU chapter seeks to raise awareness amongst students, faculty, researchers, clinicians, and administrators of the global disparities that exist in access to essential medicines and the solutions that are being used to address this problem.  More specifically, we seek to effect positive, tangible change at our university and others by advocating for the adoption of socially responsible technology management policies.
