Pharma Trade Secrets: The truth about a trade deal with Trump

November 2019

The prices that our NHS will pay as a result of a US trade deal is under threat. Our chronically underfunded NHS is already struggling to afford spiraling medicine prices. Pharmaceutical companies are charging such high prices that the NHS is increasingly having to reject or ration new, effective medicines because they are unaffordable. And yet, the US pharmaceutical industry is lobbying hard to ensure a US-UK trade deal strengthens the rules that keep prices high as well as to attack the regulations that control prices.

Briefing: Making CDC work for people and planet

November 2019

This briefing highlights some of the major problems with the CDC and the projects it funds. We believe that these problems are not aberrations but are a product of the type of organisation CDC is. CDC needs a new, legally-binding mandate which commits it to reducing poverty, closing global inequalities, doing no harm to the climate and facilitating a just, green transition to renewable energy as its driving objectives, for which its board can be held legally accountable. We propose that CDC should be transformed into an international Green Investment Bank, with the ability to lend to local and national governments in developing countries, and with other donors who share this reformed vision being invited to contribute to its finance and governance.
