Lifting Vulnerable Communities: Ensuring Access to Medicines in Trade Agreements and US Policy

Sponsored by Jubilee USA Network

WHAT: During the negotiations for a new "NAFTA," religious organizations issued a statement encouraging that trade agreements ensure access to medicine for vulnerable communities around the world and in the United States. Signers of the statement included the heads of the Presbyterian, Methodist, Lutheran, Catholic, Episcopalian and United Church of Christ Churches and interfaith development group Jubilee USA. In this panel, experts and representatives from religious institutions will discuss ways to improve NAFTA, enforce bipartisan Congress agreements on trade protections for vulnerable communities and explore policies related to prescription drug costs.
