People of Faith for Access to Medicines was proud to partner with our close ally T1International to coordinate history’s largest demonstration protesting the skyrocketing costs of insulin. Over 80 persons affected by diabetes raised their voices on September 30th outside of insulin manufacturer Eli Lilly and Company headquarters. For a video account of the demonstration, go here. And for one of the several news accounts of the moving and powerful action, go here. With people suffering and dying because they cannot afford insulin priced at $285 a vial--even though it is manufactured for around five dollars--there will be more cause and opportunity for action, until there is #insulin4all!
