Joint letter to World Trade Organization on removing barriers to production of COVID-19 medical products
This joint letter, signed by 250 global, regional and national civil society organizations, expresses concern over the emphasis on industry-controlled bilateral agreements as the primary approach to addressing global production constraints and supply shortages of COVID-19 medical products including vaccines. The letter stresses that the way forward should be to remove barriers towards the development, production and approval of vaccines, therapeutics and other medical technologies necessary for the prevention, containment and treatment of the COVID-19 pandemic, so that more manufacturers, especially from developing countries, may independently contribute to the global supply.
