Fire in the Blood

The crime of the century: the fight for life-saving drugs

The summer break is a time of well-deserved relaxation after a year of hard work, but also a time of reflection and inspiration. Let us inspire you with the fight of (among others) students from one of the most prestigious universities in the world. They brought justice and medicines to those who need it most.

During Tuesday of the Global Health Law Groningen Summer School, UAEM-Groningen will show the award-winning film Fire in the Blood. Admission is free and open for everybody!

“An intricate tale of ‘medicine, monopoly and malice’, FIRE IN THE BLOOD tells the story of how Western pharmaceutical companies and governments aggressively blocked access to low-cost AIDS drugs for the countries of Africa and the global south in the years after 1996 – causing ten million or more unnecessary deaths – and the improbable group of people who decided to fight back.”
