EU Pharma vs India’s People
Dear friends across India,
In three days, our health could be sacrificed for a disastrous trade deal. But we can still stop our government signing away India’s right to make and sell cheap medicines.
The India-European Union trade talks are highly secretive, but a leaked draft shows that Commerce Minister Sharma could appease Europe’s big pharma lobby and weaken our massive generic drugs industry. Sharma knows there will be a scandal if everyone realises he’s about to make vital medicines unaffordable, but hopes to sign on the dotted line before people notice.
Time is crucial
