Decades of cuts and privatization in health care left us vulnerable to coronavirus. How can we ensure that health care workers have the protections they need and ensure that testing, treatments, and a future vaccine are available to all? Join us to hear how nurses and health justice activists around the world are fighting back to protect themselves, their patients, and their communities and discuss what it could mean to build meaningful international solidarity in response to this global pandemic.

Speakers:

Tobita is the Director of Justice is Global, a special project of People's Action building a movement to win structural reforms to create a more equitable and sustainable global economy.

Henry Reeves International Brigade, Cuba.

Rachel is a mental health nurse and Nurses United leader. She is passionate about inclusion, neurodiversity and anti racism and co-founded the ‘Nurses of Colour Network’ as part of her work with Nurses United.

Izzie is a 22 year old Cystic Fibrosis patient and a freelance writer. She became a patient leader for Just Treatment as she strongly believes that profit shouldn’t drive access to medications that could change lives.

Director of the Tricontinental institute and chief editor at Leftword books.
