Save affordable medicines
To President Barack Obama, PM Narendra Modi and other leaders:
As citizens from around the world, we are deeply concerned by the pressure being applied to change intellectual property laws that put public health before pharmaceutical company profits. We call on you to bring leadership for public policies which make generic medicines available and affordable to the world's poor, and encourage the development of new affordable treatments.

India produces cheap HIV, malaria and cancer drugs, but American drug companies want to stop this, to sell their own products at higher prices. Their fierce lobby has got the US to push their line hard, even threatening trade sanctions if India doesn't change patent laws which put people before profits. Now pressure is rising, with talks set to begin on an investment treaty.
President Obama boldly faced down critics to expand healthcare for the poor in the US. Let's call on him to do the same for global medicine and open up the trade talks, consider our people's trade plan and put the poorest patients' lives before Big Pharma's profits. Join now!
