Dear All,

Kindly find attached a Letter signed by more than 90 regional and national NGOs working in LDCs to US Trade Representatives (USTR) expressing their shock and outrage that the United States, a rich and powerful nation, has offered a paltry 10-year duration to the world’s poorest nations to address their severe need for access to affordable medicines.

The letter appeals to the USTR to not gamble with the lives of one billion people living in LDCs and to immediately express its full and unconditionalsupport for LDCs’ request for a pharmaceutical transition period for as long as they remain LDCs.

In June 2015, more than 140 NGOs from around the world supported LDCs' request for a pharmaceutical transition period for as long as they remain LDCs.
