Access to Antibodies, a Global Call to Action

As highlighted in this report published recently by IAVI and Wellcome, the potential of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) to treat and prevent infectious and neglected diseases is enormous. Yet, with 8 mAb-based products targeting infectious diseases licensed to date, and a rapidly expanding pipeline, most of the world’s population is unlikely to have access to them, unless the global health community takes urgent action to address this inequity.
