The 3P proposal to accelerate innovation and access for new treatment regimens for TB

The aim of the ‘3P Project’ is to rapidly deliver affordable, effective new regimens for tuberculosis (TB) through an open collaborative approach to conducting drug development and through novel approaches to financing and coordinating R&D. The 3P Project implements three mechanisms to facilitate the necessary and appropriate R&D for TB regimens:

  • Push funding to finance R&D activities upfront (i.e. through grants)
  • Pull funding to incentivise R&D activities through the promise of financial rewards on the achievement of certain R&D objectives (i.e. through milestone prizes)
  • Pooling of intellectual property (IP) to ensure open collaborative research and fair licensing for competitive production of the final products
