The cost of life
OUR HEALTH IS IN DANGER
Today, many of the medicines that reach the market, such as new treatments for cancer or hepatitis C, come at exorbitant and unjustifiable prices that have turned illness into a profitable business.
Our public medical cover will be unable to continue to fund drugs at such high prices even though they are very much needed by thousands of ill patients.
Our It’s not Healthy and The Cost of Life campaigns have joined voices demanding that government implement the necessary measures to reduce the price of medicine.
If you’re also concerned about this issue, please sign this petition addressed to the Minister of Health. Help us get our message across.
HOW MUCH LONGER ARE WE GOING TO CONTINUE TO PAY A SCANDALOUS PRICE FOR MEDICINE?
Dear Ms. Minister of Health,
We are not telling you anything you do not already know when we say the price of medicine is constantly rising.
That these prices are in no way justifiable.
That the pharmaceutical companies receive colossal and outrageous profit margins on treatments for people that are sick.
That our National Budgets are not healthy enough to fund these treatments on an unlimited basis.
We are not telling you anything you do not already know when we say that our healthcare system and, therefore, our health is in real danger as a result of this model of and price fixing for medical treatments.
So, we would like to ask you one simple question: When dealing with people’s health, is it the market or the Government’s responsibility to legislate?
We are asking that you use all of the legal and political resources in your power to drastically decrease the price of innovative medicine that can save lives and introduce transparency measures throughout the entire medical R+D funding and price fixing process.
Our health depends on it.
