On Tuesday, April 6th Treatment Action Group (TAG) hosted a webinar for community advocates with a status update on current and future COVID-19 vaccine trials and answers to questions related to safety and efficacy data.
TAG submitted comments in response to the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) proposed change to rulemaking, strongly opposing amendments to remove crucial public health safeguards from the Bayh-Dole Act. March-in rights and other provisions to hold manufacturers accountable when federally funded inventions are exorbitantly priced and are critically important to public health and the right to science.
TAG led an open letter appealing to donors, countries, and health actors to improve access to GeneXpert and other diagnostics for COVID-19, TB, HIV, HBV, HCV, and other diseases by applying collective leverage in negotiations with Cepheid for lower prices and sufficient volumes; establishing cost-of-goods-sold (COGS)-plus and volume-based pricing for diagnostics as a global norm; and increasing investments in alternative rapid molecular tests to promote competition and improve access.
