Making medicines accessible
The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most profitable in the world, but it makes billions in profits from charging high prices and controlling who gets access. Meanwhile, people suffer and die from treatable conditions because they can’t afford extortionate prices.
During this pandemic, we are seeing how this profit driven system is completely inadequate to ensure Covid19 vaccines and treatments reaches everyone who needs them.
This is a system driven by corporate profit that leaves vital medicines out of reach for millions of people – in the UK and around the world. It’s a system that is economically and socially unsustainable and needs urgent reform.
