End Covid 'apartheid'!
The poorest in the world are being denied access to lifesaving treatment and vaccines. This is Covid-19 vaccine apartheid.
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.
Because of this, poorer countries are locked out of access to the vaccine, and being asked to pay extortionate amounts for it.
But it doesn't have to be this way. Countries of the Global South are asking rich countries to support a People's Vaccine and end this Covid 'apartheid’.
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.
Take action! Call on the UK government to put people’s health before profit.
