UAEM North America Newsletter & Update

By MERITH BASEY | Executive Director

UAEMers at the Fall Conference in Montreal
UAEMers at the Fall Conference in Montreal

Greetings!

UAEMers all over the globe are as busy as ever - not only pushing for measures on university campuses to protect access and affordability of publicly-funded medicines but also gaining key skills to advocate for access to affordable healthcare over the years to come!

In this report we're sharing some very exciting updates from our North American chapters, specifically via our UAEM North America Fall newsletter (linked here and attached below). We are excited to share that in the last few weeks due to student-driven advocacy not one but TWO Canadian universities have agreed to adopt global licensing principles that will better protect access and affordability of life-saving medicines developed on university campuses with tax-payer funds! This is an incredible acheivement  and the first time that a Canadian university has adopted these principles in over a decade! Hurrah!

In the newsletter you'll also learn about the continued push at UCLA to urge the university to drop it's patent claim in India on a prostate cancer drug developed on the campus as well as the success of the first Fall Conference held in Canada.

Because you’ve been part of our work, we wanted to share our successes and growth with you. Our community plays a critical role in realizing our mission, and we are grateful to have you on board. Before you go however, please remember to mark your calendars for Giving Tuesday on November 27th! On this date, there will be matching opportunities for UAEM supporters like you. We are hoping to beat last year's performance and push for 400 unique donations of 10 Dollars/Euros during the 24 hour period. We hope you can join us on that date!

Thank you for your continued support and keep us in mind on Giving Tuesday - your donations go a very long way for grassroots organizations like ours!
