Petition for PWA in South Africa
      #17101 - 03/30/01 06:13 PM

You can help make medication available to people with AIDS in South Africa by signing the petition on the Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) [Doctors Without Borders] website at by April 15.

The petition calls on 39 pharmaceutical companies to drop their lawsuit against the South African government. The lawsuit is blocking legislation to make AIDS drugs more affordable. With over 4 million people already infected with HIV, South Africa has the highest number of people living with HIV/AIDS in the world. Very few can afford the treatment that has extended and improved the lives of people in richer countries.

Please also forward this message to other concerned people that you know. MSF is working with organizations around the world to collect as many signatures as possible by mid-April, when the case resumes in court.
