Don’t Let Your Governments Trade Away Our Lives

An Open Letter to the Citizens of Europe  from Nonkosi Khumalo, Chairperson of the Treatment Action Campaign, South Africa

"We are writing to you as people living with HIV/AIDS, who rely on access to affordable medicines to stay alive. We are writing you because your governments are pushing to limit our access to medicines through a Free Trade Agreement the EU is negotiating with India, which is the world’s largest producer of affordable generic medicines.  This week, as the EU and India meet for a summit in Delhi, our lives hang in the balance as the two sides make trade-offs to come to an agreement.  Don’t let your governments trade away our lives."
