On October 12 and 13, Human Asia attended the Universities Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM) conference in Los Angeles, together with UAEM Korea. This year, the conference was hosted by the UCLA UAEM chapter, under the theme ‘Local Action, Global Impact: the Fight for Health Equity and Justice’. Along with listening to lectures on access to medicine issues and taking part in various workshops, Human Asia and UAEM Korea were able to learn more about the advocacy and research activities undertaken by UAEM chapters across America and the world. UAEM Korea also gave a presentation about access to medicines and the right to health in Korea, and their plans for their future activities.
Please look forward to Human Asia’s future work together with UAEM Korea on access to medicines and the right to health!
