New comic : Corporate Capture of Our Healthcare Systems Derails Health Equity
Corporate capture of government decision-making on healthcare poses one of the most dangerous threats to people’s right to health.
The COVID-19 pandemic is a staggering example of how corporate capture is at the heart of the inherent failure of healthcare systems globally. How does this manifest itself? At a time when sharing scientific knowledge, including patents, could save millions of lives - several pharmaceutical corporations and States have opposed this, resulting in inequitable distribution of vaccines.
Today ESCR-Net, of which we are a member, publishes a comic to illustrate how corporate capture affects our everyday lives and right to health.
