3. Metrics for measuring preparedness “have not had sufficient regard for leadership and political factors which have a bearing on how countries respond.” Global health politics has been saying for years, invisibilised by the focus on countable/quant metrics @MMKavanagh
On the global #CovidVaccine failure thus far: "More than 39 million doses of vaccine have now been administered in at least 49 higher-income countries.Just 25 doses have been given in one low-income country. Not 25 million. not 25 thousand. 25" @DrTedros #EB148 https://t.co/wv83ZtPXTs
Today, hundreds of public radio employees, past and current, join together to demand reform to our industry. Please read our open letter: "An Anti-Racist Future: A Vision and Plan for the Transformation of Public Media" https://t.co/5JXqWRexSD
“We’re not a mostly white and male industry because we consciously think white males are better, but because we live in a racist, sexist, society that has conditioned us to view white male heteronormative as the standard” Important today from pub radio folx relevant to many of us https://t.co/FmBGVwtLRt
As an undergrad I worked 2-3 campus jobs at a time. Serving in the dining hall, delivering papers, RA work etc. It was one of the reasons I felt estranged from my campus peers—I was working so much more than them. If one of my jobs had paid well, it would have been a game changer https://t.co/afJ590lj3y
College services and research depend on those of us who work through college (I washed sweaty towels in the gym, RAed, stacked books in the library). Academics can pay $15/hr. https://t.co/qaFS8tBLqD
Remarkable (appalling) spin on #COVID failure by @SecAzar: "If a novel virus like this emerged in a Democratic nation, this epidemic would have never happened" Trump admin practices "radical transparency" In February "no immediate threat" CDC thrown under bus. https://t.co/vomxm4r6Vo https://t.co/y18kBtNREp
Bringing that skill set into governing gets you this... 👇. Let’s not anymore? https://t.co/otAZiRFAbN
Gilead has a long history of price gouging Rx drugs, like Sovaldi that treats Hep C. Gilead’s monopoly control over the price isn’t b/c they discovered it. It’s b/c they used a merger to get research paid for by our tax $.Tell Gilead - no more price gouging #LowerDrugPricesNow
Execs have gotten very good at using intellectual property laws to exact high rents on knowledge they buy up from smaller companies (this the actual r&d costs are knowable, even if they’re kept secret) Eg 👇 https://t.co/Rz1vU42uVg
Eli Lilly conspired with its competitors to price fix BASIC INSULIN and increase the price from $21/vial to $275+/vial. One vial lasts me about a week and I die in 48-72 hours without it. You exploit our human need for insulin to line ur own pockets. You can’t fake morality. https://t.co/EK4kT7OsX4
Take insulin prices for example—Azar came from Lilly which has come up with all sorts of excuses for why it can/should/must hike insulin prices despite no innovation. The company has been hugely successful at misinformation, far less successful at public health or innovation 👇 https://t.co/QTgja0rjWY
The Trump administration has been lying about how many vaccine doses the US has. Azar lied about a stockpile that does not exist while bullying states into opening up access to all over-65s ahead of schedule. https://t.co/vA7dbZu3Qr
A not-small take away from COVID crisis: top executives in Pharma incentivized to lie/not “know.” Hiring this one to run HHS? lies, spin + world’s largest COVID failure. 400k dead. Not being hyperbolic, this is a structural prob b/c of perverse industry & governance incentives 🧵 https://t.co/rznBPsvVYk
Sound science will touch every aspect of what the Biden Administration does–from new policy, to addressing social inequality, to the implications of new technologies. As Deputy Director for Science and Society, inclusive and trustworthy science will have a place in government.
This is a super smart pick and a really interesting signal about science in the Biden-Harris admin. https://t.co/FZVUYPnC1P
The TAC mourns the loss of Andrew Mosane, our former PLHIV sector rep. Our Chairperson @SibongileTsha14 said Com Andrew should be remembered "as a force. A selfless leader who advocated for the rights of PLHIV and broader Healthcare users in both official & unofficial capacities" https://t.co/6GfUfFCJuj
This is really a sad loss, rest in power Andrew https://t.co/RB3YP2us3G
