The evening will begin with a brief overview from the leaders of the UAEM chapter here on how big Pharma has prevented millions of people from getting access to essential medicines due to the excessive protection of intellectual property rights and quest for higher profits. Snacks and refreshments will be provided, but please RSVP above so we know how much to bring and how big of a room to request.

About the documentary:

“Pills Profits Protest” examines critical junctures in the battle for access to HIV treatment as the poorest and most marginalized individuals confront larger powers, including governments, corporate bodies and a multinational drug industry that is motivated by profit. At the heart of this documentary is a thorny question: Can the world afford universal HIV treatment? At what cost? What will be the global cost if we fail to treat and save 40 million people now?
