  • Plan de Prevención | R2H Action

    Plan de prevención de pandemias populares El Congreso aprobará varios proyectos de ley relacionados con COVID-19 en esta sesión y la siguiente. Únase a nosotros y exija que estos proyectos de ley incluyan medidas para un Plan de Prevención de Pandemias nuevo y audaz: uno que detenga este brote, apoye una recuperación justa y tome las medidas internacionales necesarias para evitar que ocurran futuras pandemias. El próximo presidente de los Estados Unidos también debe adoptar un plan integral a la altura del momento. Donald Trump desea que el COVID-19 desaparezca mientras el país arde, e incluso el plan de Joe Biden tiene grandes vacíos que debemos estar organizando para llenar. La pandemia de COVID-19 está devastando a las personas pobres y marginadas en los Estados Unidos y en todo el mundo. La globalización empresarial y el cambio climático están provocando cada vez más pandemias y seguirán llegando cada vez más rápido. Algunos serán más contagiosos, otros serán más mortales. Algunos serán ambos. No tiene por qué ser así. No podemos detener el problema solo en Estados Unidos. Tampoco podemos hacerlo sin abordar las políticas de desigualdad y explotación que nos metieron en este lío; este momento exige una acción que responda a la escala del desafío. Insistimos en que el Congreso y el próximo presidente brinden alivio inmediato de COVID-19 y creen un cambio estructural duradero para prevenir futuras emergencias por pandemias. Nosotros demandamos: Una fuerza laboral de salud pública permanente de Community Care Corp, que crea cientos de miles de empleos sindicales permanentes para detener el COVID-19 y proteger la salud pública. Una garantía de medicamentos y vacunas asequibles que se necesitan con urgencia para todos, en todas partes, en lugar de medicamentos de alto precio ocultos detrás de las barreras del monopolio de patentes; y Los países ricos deben proporcionar fondos para los sistemas de salud y el apoyo comunitario en los países de ingresos bajos y medios para detener las pandemias donde comienzan y antes de que se propaguen. Acción para la transmisión zoonótica de puntos calientes globales donde las enfermedades pasan de los animales a los humanos, y una prohibición de las corporaciones irresponsables que venden productos de deforestación en los EE. UU. ¡Necesitamos todas las manos! ¡Juntos podemos ganar! Vaccine Equity News 1. Historic Global Fund for Pandemics launch 2.WHO and MPP announce agreement with NIH for COVID-19 health technologies 3. 170 Groups Call on WHO to reject TRIPS waiver non-deal 4. 223 NGOs Open Letter to Trade Ministers at WTO 5. 250+ public health, human rights, and consumer organizations call on governments to bypass WTO's prioritization of pharmaceutical monopolies over human lives Plan de prevención de pandemias populares Hear from Dr. Tom Frieden, former CDC Director, and Chris Noble on the R2H Organizing team about the current state of play for vaccinating the world and what is needed to ramp up our efforts to get shots in the arms to people everywhere. INVOLUCRARSE We convened the experts for a teach-in on vaccine equity and what needs to happen to ensure we can vaccinate EVERYONE as soon as possible, not just people in wealthy countries. Hear from our panelists: ​ Priti Radha Krishtel , a health justice lawyer and co-founder of I-MAK, a non-profit building a more just and equitable medicines system. Leena Menghaney , an activist with Medicine Sans Fronteir’s Access Campaign based in India (Otherwise known as Doctors Without Borders) Matthew Rose , a longstanding HIV and social justice advocate, policy wonk, and Director of U.S. Policy & Advocacy at Health GAP INVOLUCRARSE [WATCH] Should Rich Countries Be Obligated to Share Their Vaccines? Listen to our upcoming panelist Priti Krishtel speak with Hari Sreenivasan about the need to rethink how patents are regulated. While the COVID-19 vaccine is readily available in the U.S., the UK and Israel, experts are saying that most of Africa and parts of South America and Asia will wait until 2023 for its inoculations. Health inequality was badly exposed during this pandemic, but Priti Krishtel says it doesn't have to be this way.
