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!'

Brussels, December 16, 2009 - Asylum seekers and undocumented migrants are bearing the brunt of increasingly restrictive policies which take a toll on their physical and mental health. Escaping conflict, deprivation or widespread violations of human rights, they endure long and dangerous journeys to Europe.

Others remain trapped outside Europe or are intercepted and sent back to countries where their health and lives may be at risk. Ahead of International Migrants Day, the international humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) urges policy makers across Europe to respect the life and dignity of migrants and asylum seekers and improve their access to basic services, including shelter and health care.
