RFP- Consultant to develop a communications creative campaign

  • Anywhere
Organization: International Treatment Preparedness Coalition
Closing date: 16 Nov 2022

Background

The International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC) is a global coalition of PLHIV and community activists working to achieve universal access to optimal HIV, HCV and TB treatment of those in need. Formed in 2003 by a group of 125 HIV activists from 65 countries at a meeting in Cape Town, ITPC actively advocates for treatment access in eight regions across the globe. ITPC believes that the fight for treatment remains one of the most significant global social justice issues.

The Make Medicines Affordable Campaign works to bring down the price of HIV, TB, Hepatitis C, and potential COVID-19 medicines and vaccines, specifically in middle-income countries (MICs). Make Medicines Affordable (MMA) believes it is every person’s right to access the treatment they need, and that intellectual barriers (IP) preventing access must be removed. The MMA campaign is a civil society-led initiative made up of civil society organizations from over 20 countries. These organizations include patients, lawyers, health experts and activists, who have chosen to challenge the IP measures through successful legal and technical interventions, in-line with the TRIPS (Trade-Related Aspects to Intellectual Property) agreements, and working to change patent laws to improve access to medicines.

In the over two decades of TRIPS implementation, civil society and particularly community-based groups like people living with HIV, HCV and cancer have played a key role in advocating for, ensuring the use of, and even directly implementing TRIPS flexibilities through patent oppositions and litigation. The extent of work and expertise of CSOs and the critical role they play in balancing WTO mandated IP rules with public interest and health while also resisting the onslaught of TRIPS-plus measures is underappreciated and under-resourced.
