aidsfocus.ch supports Petition to Novartis
Act-up Basel: Take your claws off our medicines
aidsfocus.ch Novartis is threatening India’s capacity to provide affordable drugs to millions of people worldwide in need of ARV by challenging the Indian Patent Law in the Supreme Court of India. The next hearing will take place in New Delhi on the 28th of February 2012. The Steering Committee of aidsfocus.ch decided unanimously to support the petition launched by Act-up Basel. With the petition, Novartis is asked to drop the case against the Indian government and the Indian patent law. aidsfocus.ch considers the right to health care as a human right, and demands equity in access and access to free or at least affordable ARV treatments for all.
