The fight against COVID-19: let’s make public investments count for peopleComments Off on The fight against COVID-19: let’s make public investments count for people

The European Doctors along with other organisations representing patients, consumers, trade unions and public interest organisations expressed its views on the importance of public support to research and development during the current pandemic in an open letter published today.

The letter observes that since January, the European Commission and national governments have mobilised millions of Euros to promote research on COVID-19, and recommends to incorporate the collective, pro-public safeguards for exploitation of end-result products in calls and investments so that all of these necessary medical tools are free of charge at the point of delivery, particularly for vulnerable populations.
