Pharma profits over human rights?
There’ll be no end in sight to the COVID-19 pandemic unless global pharmaceutical giants boost vaccine supply to poorer countries.
That’s the warning by Amnesty International, who has accused these companies of fuelling a human rights crisis.
Amnesty International's latest report has revealed that AstraZeneca, BioNTech, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, Novavax and Pfizer, are refusing to waive intellectual property rights.
Amnesty International SA's Executive Director, Shenilla Mohamed says these companies are failing to meet their human rights responsibilities.
