The bullying tactics used by pharmaceutical company, Novartis, to threaten the Colombian government in 2016 were exposed in a recently leaked letter.
This letter is the most recent evidence of the undue pressure that developing countries face when trying to tackle unaffordable medicine prices charged by pharmaceutical companies.
It’s time to take a stand so that governments are not bullied out of using their legal right to challenge high prices charged by big pharmaceutical companies.
Our allies have demanded that the Novartis cleans up its act in a global letter. Join the Missing Medicines campaign alongside Access to Medicines Ireland, Act Up London, All-Ukrainian Network of people living with HIV/AIDS, IFARMA, Just Treatment, Misión Salud, Positive Malaysian Treatment Access and Advocacy Group, Public Citizen and Treatment Action Campaign – let’s call on Novartis to stop bullying countries from taking steps to help people access life-saving medicines.
