Take Action

Take action for a people’s vaccine

Our best chance of ending this pandemic is to ensure that everyone, everywhere has access to COVID-19 vaccines, tests and treatments. But pharmaceutical monopolies could leave countries in the global south waiting up to 2023 for widespread vaccination. This threatens everyone as no-one is safe until everyone is safe.

1. HELP SPREAD THE WORD

Despite backing from over 13 million people and 100 countries including the USA, a few rich governments including the EU and UK have steadfastly halted any progress.

The big pharma companies have racked up billions in profit whilst over 5 million people have lost their lives to COVID-19, with economies and livelihoods brought to a stand still.

The world cannot afford more delays.

Spread the word on social media or by sending this video to a friend.

2. TWEET TO eu LEADERS About THE TRIPS WAIVER PROPOSAL

After eighteen months of negotiation, this agreement is a disappointment, and whilst definitely a compromise, does still largely reflect the EU position. It is also problematic that the actual waiver is built around a functional expansion of compulsory licensing, as opposed to a more elegant and direct solution of simply waiving all intellectual property for the duration of the pandemic for all medical technologies. We must work hard to push for improvements to this compromise text in the coming days and weeks.

Call on EU leaders to push for a #TrueTRIPSwaiver

OUR DEMANDS TO GOVERNMENTS AND BIG PHARMA

  • Pharmaceutical companies openly share vaccines know-how. They can do this through joining the World Health Organisation Covid-19 Technology and Access Pool (C-TAP).
  • Governments suspend patent rules at the World Trade Organisation on Covid-19 vaccines, treatments and testing during the pandemic. This will help break Big Pharma monopolies and increase supplies so there are enough doses for everyone, everywhere.
