The No Profit on Pandemic campaign is a European Citizens’ Initiative calling on the European Commission to do everything in its power to make anti-pandemic vaccines and treatments a global public good, accessible to everyone. The initiative aims to collect one million signatures in support of equal access to vaccines by May 2022.
Health Action International is supporting the campaign and working to encourage European citizens in our network and in particular in the Netherlands, where we are based, to sign the initiative. We are working in coalition with other Dutch organisations including Wemos, Oxfam Novib, TNI, FNV, De Goede Zaak, Farma ter Verantwoording and War Child Holland, to meet this goal. Today, to mark one year since the sombre milestone of the first death from COVID-19 in the Netherlands, HAI and our partner organisations across the Netherlands are hosting this guest blog which was written by Oxfam France in support of the campaign.
