Stop Turing Pharmaceuticals and Mr. Shkreli before even more people die of AIDS

This petition had 641 supporters


Turing Pharmaceuticals, the pharmaceutical investment vehicle of Mr. Martin Shkreli purchased the rights to the drug pyrimethamine, a life saving treatment for people suffering from AIDS sold under the trade name Daraprim, which was followed by a 5000% price increase of the medicine. The prohibitive price of 750 USD per pill (!) means that thousands of people with AIDS are on a certain course to death as health care systems will not be able to fund treatment for them.

We must stop the cynical and deeply unethical conduct of Mr. Shkreli and Turing Pharmaceuticals. The community of people living with HIV will not quietly sit and watch a greedy individual make illegitimate profits at the price of our lives and health.

Please join the European AIDS Treatment Group in this global protest. Let's make noise, let your voices be heard! Sign this petition, send open letters to your politicians, petition your health care systems, shout, yell, protest!
