Student wins for access to medicines!

By Merith Basey | Executive Director, UAEM North America

UAEM North American Leadership Meeting 2019
UAEM North American Leadership Meeting 2019

What makes UAEM students hustle? Organizing on university campuses to ensure publicly-funded medicines are accessible and affordable to the people who need them!

A week ago we wrapped up a three day weekend in Washington DC composed of campaign strategizing, team-building and advocacy for access to medicines with some donuts, karaoke and even some fitness for good measure. The team who plays together, stays together! This year we saw 24 students participate from chapters across the US and Canada in conjunction with leadership from Europe and Brazil. The weekend commenced with the team making numerous legislative visits and ended with draft plans for our campaigning for the next two years. Our team left motivated and equipped for the months of campaiging ahead.

While the press these days seems to moan about millennials, I can assure you that this group of students are not only hard-working and passionate about the cause they are leading campaigns that make a difference! You can read about one such 23 year old UAEM student, who lead the University of Calgary, Canada to adopt licensing provisions that will ensure any new medical innovation developed on campus will be access and affordable in low and middle income countries. 

Your support of UAEM helps us support students like Asha to make a difference where they have power: on their campuses. We are grateful!
