Master Alliance Provisions Guide (MAPGuide)

The MAPGuide platform is a tool for accessing and exploring analysis of global health agreements, particularly those that seek to ensure equitable access to medical products. Below is a brief overview of some of the tools available on the platform.

How Do You Get from Equitable Access Policy to Measurable Impact

Equitable Access Toolkit

Our Equitable Access Toolkit provides insights into how 'equitable access' can be explained and how policies can be translated into provisions for product R&D funding agreements that result in meaningful and measurable impact. The toolkit presents best practice considerations for developing and negotiating product R&D funding agreements, including different options that can be used depending on the context of an agreement, supported by examples from actual agreements.

Resources: Key Issues

Our analysis of agreements is organized into “issues” which are key areas of consideration for rapidly developing and negotiating global health agreements with the aim of enabling increased global access to healthcare products. 

These short issue introductions can be a good place to start if you’re new global health agreements. 

Resources: Commentaries

Our commentary pages provide perspectives on how agreement provisions can have an impact on who has access to critical medical products, and when. 

Take a look at these pages if you want to learn more about the importance of agreements but don’t want to dig into detailed legal language.
