Summary

Free the Vaccine for COVID-19 is a campaign built on a platform of Advocacy Innovation Labs. It brings together hundreds of people from around the world to collaboratively ensure publicly-funded diagnostic tools, treatment, and the COVID-19 vaccine will be sustainably priced, available to all and free at the point of delivery. We do this by collectively experimenting with and testing new forms of advocacy designed for these challenging times.

Challenge

The problem is this: when we do have a vaccine, will everyone have access to it? Without affordable access for all, across the globe, the vaccine can't do its job and some groups are at increased risk. Already governments around the world are investing billions in tax-payer funds into the research and development of diagnostic tools, treatments, and a vaccine for Covid-19. Almost everyone, everywhere is waiting for drugs and vaccines that can change lives, history and the current narrative.

Solution

We're training hundreds of people in how to become the cutting-edge, creative activists of the future. We are implementing a global program designed for the time of physical distancing with live weekly online courses on innovative advocacy and best practices in access to medicines advocacy with the goal of ensuring publicly-funded diagnostics, therapeutics and the vaccine are sustainably priced, available to all and free at the point of delivery.

Long-Term Impact

Our vision is to empower citizens to respond to the biomedical access and innovation crisis by advocating for the most promising global biomedical R&D system that works for all favoring people over profit. What must replace the current model is an ethical, people-centered, needs- driven R&D system where publicly funded research leads to needed and affordable treatments.
