Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) staff and supporters rallied outside the offices of the European Commission on November 8, before delivering an open letter of protest against ongoing trade talks between the European Union and India that could damage access to affordable medicines. The provisions in the free trade agreement under discussion could seriously impede generic medicines producers in India from delivering more affordable and quality generic versions of medicines for people in developing countries. MSF itself could not carry out much of its medical humanitarian work without access to these drugs. Support MSF's campaign 'Europe! Hands Off Our Medicine!'
