Dear all,

The Medicines Patent Pool has signed a licence with Shasun Pharmaceuticals and Gilead Sciences that will allow Shasun to produce the active ingredients of 5 key HIV medicines licensed to the MPP by Gilead Sciences for sale in the 100-112 countries where the majority of people living with HIV reside.

Shasun is an India-based active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) manufacturer. Shasun is the sixth generic manufacturer to take a licence from the Medicines Patent Pool. MPP’s other licensees – Aurobindo, Emcure, Hetero, and Laurus Labs – are already producing HIV medicines for use in developing countries.
