Yale’s Dean of Public Health: Yale did not lose money due to Stavudine patent concession


“Most significantly for our purposes, the proportion of revenue that a university would obtain from developing countries, even on a blockbuster drug, will be vanishingly small–only a few percent of those few percent of total revenues that PhRMA companies make in LMI countries. Yale reported no lost revenue as a result of the stavudine patent concession in South Africa, and Yale’s Dean of Public Health Michael Merson stated that “[t]his change was made at Yale without any negative consequencesto the University-financial or otherwise.’
