2020 was a year of remarkable human acts of solidarity.
Be it from doing groceries for vulnerable neighbours to scientists working day and night to find a solution to end all of this.
Luckily, we can start 2021 with the hope of being close to a safe and effective Covid-19 vaccine.
However, there are still lots of unanswered questions.
Pharmaceutical companies refuse to share their knowledge, although their research was funded with public money.
In fact, we risk paying millions for Big Pharma’s profits, money needed for our health systems. 90% of people in the lowest income countries likely won’t receive a vaccine in the next year.
We need to keep vaccines and treatments against COVID-19 affordable, safe and accessible to all.
That’s why AED-EDL supports the Right to Cure European Citizens’ Initiative.
We need 1 million signatures to make the European Commission assure that future COVID-19 vaccines and treatments will be a global public good, freely accessible to everyone, and drop deadly patents on life-saving vaccines and treatments.
COVID-19 spreads like wildfire. Solutions must travel even faster. No one is safe until everyone has access to safe and effective treatments and vaccines.
We all have the right to a cure
