San Patten and Associates prepared a policy research paper for my division on a complex and involved topic. We were extremely pleased with the overall calibre of the work, the comprehensiveness of their research, and the diligence and dedication shown throughout the process. The research results delivered a breadth and depth of content and recommendations in response to the issue of intellectual property and vaccine development that went far beyond our initial expectations. It was a pleasure to work with her throughout the project, and I have and would recommend her without hesitation.

Ms. Patten would bring an extensive and thorough knowledge of HIV/AIDS, both from the policy side and from a scientific perspective, excellent analytical skills, and outstanding writing ability to your undertaking. I have found her to be thorough in her work, thoughtful in her approach and flexible and diplomatic in her ability to work with a wide range of stakeholders.
