Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) Canada presents:
A free screening of award-winning documentary Fire in the Blood and discussion of access to medicines in light of the most damaging trade agreement MSF has ever seen. Join MSF Canada on Tuesday, June 17 for a free screening in Ottawa and meet the executive director of MSF Canada, Stephen Cornish.
Fire in the Blood is an award-winning documentary about the fight against powerful governments and big pharma to lower the cost of generic medicines for millions of people living with AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa. After the screening, experts will discuss how access to medicines continues to be threatened by these same forces, including through provisions proposed in a secretive trade deal: the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Agreement.
Please register for free tickets and sign MSF Canada’s petition calling on Canada ensure access to life-saving medicines is not undermined by the TPP.
