What if you couldn’t get medicine for yourself or someone you love?
Join Global Reporting Centre founder and journalist Peter Klein as he discusses the Million Dollar Med$ project and its investigation of the impact of rare diseases on Canadian families and how Canada can increase access to treatments that could save lives.
Then, Canada Research Chair in Access to Medicines Michael Law will discuss just how easy or difficult it is to get life-saving medicines in Canada – and how nearly one million Canadians cut back on food and heat to pay for prescription drugs.
