WHY WE’RE HERE
We are here today, on April Fool’s Day, to speak out against the unfairness, unsustainability, absurdity and hypocrisy of the current system for providing access to medication for people in the UK and around the world.
We believe that access to medicines, vaccines and health care should be a basic principle of common dignity that is accessible to everyone.
We believe that people should come before profit, and that the purpose of producing medication is to provide care to those in need, rather than to line the pockets of pharmaceutical company shareholders.
WHO WE ARE
We are a coalition of health advocacy groups, in 11 cities around the world, who feel passionate about ending healthcare inequalities.
WHAT WE’RE DOING
We stand here naked, completely vulnerable, a state in which the current system leaves millions around the world.
We also stand with bareness and honesty, and we demand that drug companies be exposed in the same way.
WHAT WE WANT
We demand that governments take responsibility for the status quo and take action to change it.
We demand change to the system of developing, producing and distributing medication.
