Trans Pacific Partnership will limit medication access

According to the Emory Chapter of Universities Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM):
A potential final round of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations will be taking place in Atlanta next week and a number of wonderful organizations, including Universities Allied for Essential Medicines, are trying to increase awareness of the access to medicines issues and put pressure on negotiators to not trade away our health.The specific area of concern with TPP is that the intellectual property provisions would detrimentally impact access to affordable medications in America and across the globe.

Here’s what the UAEM is looking for from the Atlanta community:

  • People to attend an Access to Medicines press conference and visible action at 10am on October 1 at the Westin Peachtree Plaza, where the negotiations will be taking place.This will be followed by a 12 pm rally with allies from trade unions, environmental organizations, and others concerned about the TPP.
  • Clinicians and/or patients willing to speak about implications of expanding monopolies for biologic medicines in the TPP (UAEM can coach you!).
