Support a TRIPS Waiver!
The poorest in the world are being denied access to lifesaving treatment and vaccines. People across the global south are dying from a virus that we can only tackle by making access to vaccines, tests and treatments equitable and accessible.
In May 2021, the US voiced support for a waiver for vaccine production. Now we are calling on the UK to do the same.
So far, rather than helping to end this global pandemic, the UK has backed big business, and is blocking a proposal at the World Trade Organisation that would be a game-changer in the global fight against the pandemic.
Despite the fact that much of the research into Covid-19 vaccines and treatment is funded by taxpayers, the vaccines have become the private property of big pharmaceutical companies who want to make a profit from the pandemic.
Take action! Call on the UK government to put people’s health before profit.
