Co-sign the open letter to free vaccines from patents on the occasion of International Health Day!

D 26 March 2021    


In view of International Health Day on April 7th, the European Network and PHM are mobilizing in support of the European citizens’ initiative Right2Cure in order to mobilize citizens and put pressure on governments to obtain:

  • free, universally accessible and affordable vaccines for all countries
  • more transparency on all issues related to the pandemic and that no profit is made at the expense of our lives
  • the urgent removal of patents on vaccines and other Covid-19 medical products
  • the sharing of knowledge and technological know-hows of pharmaceutical companies so that production can be expanded.

In an open letter, we ask from EU institutions and European governments to take their responsibility on the occasion of International Health Day by acting on above demands. Would you like to support? Co-sign the open letter before April 1st at 12 AM CET via this Google Form.

Here you can find the letter in different languages:
English
Français
Nederlands
Italiano
Spanish

We invite all countries to address this letter to their own policymakers and parlementarians at national and local level . The competency usually lies with the Ministery of foreign affairs and international trade, the trade minister, as well as addressing prime minister , health minister and minister of development cooperation minister is usefull. At the same time there is a growing support in the European parliament and therefore it would be good to address your MEP. If pressure comes from all side , there will be more chance we will be successful!
