We can end the pandemic if pharmaceutical companies share their knowledge and technology. Other companies can produce COVID-19 vaccines, and no one will be denied a vaccine.
Take action now to call on pharma to play ball so that everyone has a fair shot at a COVID-19 vaccine.
Everyone in the world should have access to a COVID-19 vaccine, no matter who they are or where they are from. Access could mean the difference between life and death for years to come. And yet, on current trends, leading pharmaceutical companies won’t deliver enough vaccines for even a fraction of the world’s population this year. On top of this, poorer countries are at the back of the queue.
Billions of taxpayer’s money have been spent to help companies like AstraZeneca, Moderna and Pfizer BioNTech to develop and produce vaccines. These vaccines belong to the people and must be shared.
One way that companies can do this is by joining the World Health Organisation’s COVID-19 Technology Access Pool (C-TAP), designed to pool resources between companies. So far, no company has joined it.
It’s time to put people’s lives first. Let’s use our power in numbers to show pharma companies that we want them to live up to their human rights responsibilities by sharing their knowledge and technology and joining C-TAP now.
Join the global movement now and tell pharmaceutical companies to give everyone a fair shot.
Twenty years ago, millions of people gained access to life-saving HIV treatment after leading pharma companies conceded to an incredible public movement and eventually allowed others to produce low-cost, ‘generic’ versions of HIV medicines.
We once again face a pivotal moment, this time with COVID-19, where millions of lives are on the line. Yet pharmaceutical companies are refusing to share their knowledge and technology to help end the pandemic.
Take action and call on pharmaceutical companies share their knowledge and technology so we can end the pandemic with no one left behind.
