“Being here today is very important because events like this reveal to those who make science the presence of minorities that the right to health does not reach”. To say this on the occasion of the assignment of the calls of Gilead Sciences, Fellowship and Community Award Program, is Lucia Ercoli, health manager of the Institute of Solidarity Medicine.
‘Making the Impossible Possible’ is the theme chosen by the Californian biopharmaceutical company for 2021 and Ercoli explains how this ‘slogan’ should inspire all those involved in science: “In my view, one of the commitments of science should be precisely to ensure that there are no inequalities in access to health care and medicines. (especially those that fight sexually transmitted infections, hepatitis and of course now also Covid). The pandemic has highlighted the profound inequalities in access to health care both in Italy and globally. Research must ensure that no one is left behind and that everyone is guaranteed access to treatment “.
