We feel inspired by yesterday’s engaging event. Panelists shared their stories about using legal strategies for promoting access to medicines, ranging from HIV treatment action campaigns, using human rights to promote access to medicines in Brazil, compulsory licensing in Russia, TRIPS flexibilities, and the possibility of holding pharma accountable under international human rights law.
When pharma conducts ‘business as usual’, we continue with ‘action as usual’.Wilbert Bannenberg, PAF chair
