Jamie Meggs started this petition to Pfizer and

ARV medication is an essential for those living with HIV. Without these drugs, the virus will progress in their body, and eventually become AIDS (Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). Luckily, most of those living with HIV in western countries (Canada, America, Sweden, ect)  will never progress into AIDS. However We cannot say the same for those living in developing countries. The continent of Africa is struggling the most with this epidemic, yet they only make up 1% of all pharmaceutical sales for ARV drugs. Why? Because of the patent laws surrounding them. The goal of this petition is to change the laws surrounding the patents, resulting in a law that states that no drugs that are essential to survival become patented, or at least sold for profit. Something needs to change, you should not have to pay for your survival.
